Haha  I have written 2

Haha 

I have written 2 comments so far and half way through each my computer has closed the internet.

At the moment the reel is on a cheap Penn road but will be put on a penn international rod 10-15kg, with fuji guides and aftco tip.  Personally not a fan of Levelwinds as I have had sambos/sharks which have pulled line out fast enough so the levelwind cant keep up and the result is a lost fish.


Yeah the new Leverdrag models look the goods, but I am actually impressed with the star drag on the torque, but would prefer a LD.


LOL big John I'll get you a pick of the collection of penn's :)

Torque

Hows the reel holding up Dean, still good?  Think I musta got a dud one, not impressed at all and had it serviced near on 10 times, mind you, has caught a lot of fish and taken a flogging over the last 2 years.

No Problems at all.

Reel is used everytime we go out on the boat for the big stuff and caught a heap of fish from dhuies to sambo's, sharks etc.

What issues have you had with yours? freespool?
