Get SS tanks wherever you want, they'll all leak , but for reels you should spring for a couple heavy version Hewes. I bought two based on how people here were rhapsodizing about them. They blow my Nikors away; how easy they load, how they feel in the hand, even how they look. See if Freestyle has some or pony up at a local shop. You'll be convinced.
Thanks. I'm looking around for Hewes reels but may just pop for mail order to the States with the C$ above par for new ones.
