Hey folks,

Pike season is almost here :)

I'm after a couple of new reels, currently have the FOX Eos 10000 bit pit reels which i acquired when i bought my piking gear as a job lot, and they weigh a freaking ton :(

I have 2 Wychwood Agitator 10ft 2.75lb bait rods, nothing flash.

Ideally looking for 5500(ish) size reels, good cranking power, free spool facility, long cast spool, back wind, and super light weight (350g tops). Only looking to load them with 10lb mono so no massively deep spools if possible.

Any ideas would be appreciated :)

Had a couple of Sonik VaderX5000fs reels pass through my hands, although I never used them, they seemed quite smooth, 2 spools and quite light, can get them quite cheap.
