Scientific Anglers System2 89L Reel
Hi guys - I'm new to this forum

I've got a trip to Bali planned in October and I'm considering taking the reel mentioned above - however I'm not sure how the drag will perform on fast running fish - I've never put it to the test.

Has anone had any experience of this reel hooking a bonefish / trevally or similar? I dont want to shell out for a new reel if I dont need to.....

I used that very reel on my first bonefish tip and it did fine, I landed probably 20 bones up to 7lbs and when I returned I sent it in to make sure the drag was still ok and SA sent it back saying all was good! Don't know about travally.

Well that sounds like a good endorsement to me...!
