So I was just gifted a Martin 63 Reel (Thanks Rudy), and it is very cool! Love the looks and the mechanism, it just seems like a good simple reel. I read several threads about it on this site that piqued my interest though and figured I would ask my questions here.
What kind of rods would these have normally been used on when they came out, specifically fiberglass rods?
It seems that it may be a bit to heavy to balance on say a FF60, yet may be too light for an FF805. It seems as if it would be right at home on like a 7' to 7'5" 3-4-5 wt especially one designed for smaller water.
Anyway, just curious with whomever has used it what they used it for and on. Super cool little reel.
