    I have a 7/8. I have it loaded with a 9wt line with 100m of 20lbs backing. I just got it for light saltwater use.... grunter, leeries, tigers. The drag is super smooth and it adjusts finely over a largish range which I like. If I tighten up the drag it takes a large amount of force to pull it and it remains smooth throughout. The construction is very pleasing and all parts fit very well. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and I just need to put it through its paces which will really determine my rating of the reel.

    Hi Mr Smith,

    Have a 5/6 wt, loaded it with gelspun, 80m odd, and a Rio Outbound Floater (great line!!!). A 7/8wt is probably the better option for the salt, but this is what I had, and still to see any of the above species taking this amount of line.
