Alvey reel size for growing kid?

Recommended Posts


Im doing some research on the next Alvey reel for my son turning 11 years old.

He’s on a 4 inch and looking to use a 3.2m rod at the beach.

Probably for flathead, bream, whiting, dart mostly unless he gets something fishy that’s bigger.

What are your thoughts?

I reckon a 6 inch would be perfect.

You could go either a 5 or 6, but considering he already has a 4, I'd go a 6 and enjoy the slightly quicker line retrieve.

Also, as he ages and may want to try a little rock fishing, the 6 will suit that to the ground.
