Question

Size pairing for a 7'4 Medium Action rod

I have been mulling over the purchase of this reel for a while and I have decided to go with it.

What size would be best to pair with a 7'4 medium action spinning rod?

I'm leaning toward the 9350 but I would like to hear some input from others.

answer 2
9535 should be your choice for medium.
The weight fully allows this size. And reel will be more smooth in this size. And will serve you for eternity.
9530 is a light size.

Should work out fine. I usually make sure the rod is balanced by resting it on my finger where the foregrip ends to make sure the reel is not to big or heavy.

Depends what you're fishing for. Unless you're fishing for large fish that will run your line off the reel, pick a size that will give you 100-150 yard capacity of the line size you'll be using most.

answer 2
changing the spool is very easy. loosen the drag on top of the reel until you can get it off, but make sure you dont lose the flat washer and the plastic washer underneath the spool, you will need those washers for the other spool when swapping it out.

Any size of the Pflueger® Patriarch™ Spinning Reel, item IK-128616, can be used on a 7'6" rod. The length of the rod is usually not the determining factor of which reel to select. The primary critera are the desired line weight and line capacity of the reel.
