Guys. Just ordered a Drennan acolyte power feeder 13' for the Trent fishing. I've an old Shimano b/r 8000 reel that I could use as a bigger reel for it, but thought it might be a bit heavy? Would 5000/6000 really be much lighter, or should I save my money? The old 8000 is about at the size of a current day 6000 spool size wise? I know they use carbon a lot for bodies these days too! Thoughts please?
