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 more)

bought 2 FS10000 reels last year and both free spool adjustments broke this year. Also bought 2 FS7000 ( before the others broke!) and the anti reverse on one broke this week. All reels have had light useage. Build quality is rubbish which is a shame because I actually like these reels. (read more)

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 more)

It's a great reel when it works. Both the rear drag and the anti-reverse broke within 6 months with only minimal use. (read more)

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:... (read more)
