“While spinning for bass near Dover I hooked into a 4lb...”

Written on: 04/08/2013

While spinning for bass near Dover I hooked into a 4lb bass,as I was trying to land the fish the spool detached it self from the reel body and would not clip back into place.I whipped the line to my bottom eye and dragged the fish on to the beach. Fox sent me a free spool which when put on the the reel took me ten minutes to get off,luckily enough when you buy the reel you do get a spare spool which works fine… Read Full Review

“Fox FS 7000”

Written on: 04/07/2012

These are great reels, the drag is superb, better than my Shimanos. The line lay is superb and they caste brilliantly. BUT......the build quality is shocking. I bought two and both have gone wrong. The free spool lever is rediculously delicate and the whole mechanism will pack up on you....it just will. On an upside Fox have been great and have replaced the reels both times. I am very tempted to sell them on but the trouble is I really like using them… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/11/2008

The Foz Stratos FS7000 fishing reel is a very good piece of fishing tackle. It comes with a lifetime guarantee. Its got an unbelievable line lay and great front and rear drag. I found that it casts a very long way and has a very stylish design. This reel is a very good reel but I do think that its slightly overpriced as well… Read Full Review

“The Fox stratos 7000E is a compact reel that is...”

Written on: 01/09/2007 by saintlysimon (15 reviews written)

The Fox stratos 7000E is a compact reel that is designed primarily for smaller waters, controller fishing or specimen barbel and tench.
With 9 ball bearings these powerful reels have excellent line lay and are built to last.
The quality of the fully adjustable freespool facility and precision front drag set them apart from the competition.
A slow oscillation means line lay is superb which improves casting potential as well as promoting greater line longevity.
Two line reducers are supplied: a… Read Full Review
