Bought this after a recommendation from a mate. Its a great red, hardy quality, great bang for buck, a quality real, feels solid, good drag and big enough spool to take WF7/8. it works really well with the gel spy backing. BIG TIP..BUY THE 300 YARDS it works a treat as you put 80 yards on each of the spools and it loads to the required depth on all 3 spools supplied with the reel. The line (I got the rio gold) is the icing on the cake,= for this deal. You really so need a good reason NOT to buy this reel for the average freshwater fisherman who needs a cheap spare spool costs. The spool costs of other reels in this quality just price them out for me bearing in mind the reel holds line for freshwater folk. just great deal.
