I bought one of these 2080 reels and tried it on bonefish in Turks & Caicos. I used it on first fish and never put it down. Reel was balanced on my Sage RPLX 8 wt and holds plenty of backing to outlast a 7lb bone. Drag is smooth and wide arbor is a great feature. IMO - at this price there isn't a better value on the market. This reel just moved to the front of my saltwater "flats" arsenal. One more thing, I like the easy out spool feature, held in place by an O ring. I was initially suspect of this but it worked great. Hurry and buy one!
