Ratings & Reviews
Smaller reel size
Initially, I purchased the 7/8 model but it was a little large for my setup (WF8, 9' TFOLeftyKreh). I found the 5/6 size reel to be the right size for me. With about 30 yds backing, the WF8 Floating line filled the spool; WF8 Sinking had space for more backing if wanted. Overall, nice, would buy again.
Seems good for the money

I bought the to go with a short, 3 wt., St. Croix rod for fishing small, brushy streams in New Mexico. 'Seems a solid piece of equipment - light and smooth. The drag is very sensitive, i.e., it just takes a little turn to change the drag a lot.
great for erie steel. handles bumps and bruises.
great reel for the price
I bought this reel in a 7/8w about a year ago for steelhead fishing. Works great and does a wonderful job on the long runs that the steelhead love to make. I have caught probably 100 steelies on it, and the drag works as good as new.(unlike some of my other reels). It's becoming a favorites, smooth and reliable.
