I have read a few posts regarding both of these reels (Redington RS2 and Pflueger Trion), but have found no real comparisons. I figured it was because there's about a $50 difference in the list price.

So if you could pick either of these reels up for the same price (new), which would you choose? The weight and backing capacity looks to be the same for the 9/10 model. I'll be using it with a GL3 9ft. 9wt. for reds/specks and maybe some jetty fishing on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Thanks for your input. Randy
