The finish of the reels is very robust, and the general running of the reels is that they are very smooth
16 bearings front and rear drag and double handle
All of the above would suggest on paper that this real is one very smooth operator, but sadly all these gimicks come at a price. These are by far the most tempramental reels I have ever owned, and in the space of one year have had all three reels replaced for varying failing parts and although fox can not be faulted for there service I just cant work with tackle that I can neither trust or rely on. The worst incidence I experienced was the bait runner facilty completley failed on me and wouldnt disengage whilst attached to the other end was very angry 34lb linear carp (for me this was my uk PB) that I had to handline in from 80 yards out not good sorry.
