I have all three sizes and extra spools for each.
These reels cover all my freshwater species fishing needs. From panfish/trout to pike/muskies.

    Very smooth drag and low startup friction. Drag is not very strong and is best suited for freshwater fishing

    • Describe Yourself: Professional
    • Pros: Durable, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
    • Was this a gift?: No
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by PickyFlyGuy from Pacific NW on Thursday, October 18, 2012
    If you are thinking of buying this reel for an 8 weight saltwater set-up, requiring lots of backing, don't. If you are seeking a lightweight reel for a saltwater 6 or 7 weight - great. Also might be a good freshwater fly reel for summer steelhead, e.g., on a lightweight 10' 5 or 6 weight switch or single hand fly rod.
    • Best Uses: 6 Or 7 Weight Rod Not 8, Back Up Reel For Salt
    • Cons: Limited backing capacity
    • Describe Yourself: Avid Fisher
    • Pros: Fast Line Pickup, LIGHTWEIGHT, Sturdy Construction

  • Reviewed by Flyfish44 from Victoria, Australia on Monday, August 20, 2012
    Would almost rate this reel above the Lamsons for robustness in the spool. It will stand a little more of the rough treatment such as drops. Good Drag that withtands saltwater use on Australian Salmon (Salt Water coastal pelagic) that have as much go as bonefish. Am using 6/7/8 as competition reel with 3 complete reels and 3 spare spools running 6 lines. Very easy to interchange spools quickly. Much quicker that cartridge systems in situations where time matters.

    The reel is very well made. I expected it to be smaller in diameter. I will not use it with clients due to size. Best used on 7 or 8 weight, size is a little disproportionate to 6 weight. Overall I am pleased with my purchase.

    • Pros: Durable, Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
