which patriarch?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am torn on which model patriarch to purchase. I am using it on a 7'6" heavy for flipping and some c-rigs. I am pretty sure I want the high speed but do i need the wide spool or regular??? Thanks.

Personally, I prefer the feel of the wide-spool model when I palm it and like knowing that I've got plenty of line on hand. I doubt I'll ever need it, but I like having it there anyway.

I changed the intended use from flipping to 6'6" MH Avid. Probably mostly light jigs and texas rigs. Does this change the advice leaning towards the wlp???

I've got one of my WLP's on a 7' med xfast rod I use for small jigs, smaller t rig worms, chompers style spider jigs, etc.  the reel has worked great for me.

I would put it to what size line you use...if you plan on using some larger line, say 15lb+, I would go with the WLP...I personally don't feel that much of a difference between the two...

Also think about your thumbs, long slender thumbs are better suited with the LP....wider thumbs, WLP
