not sure about that, but it is a great reel, the one I got the tarpon on. smooth drag, and more backing than most out there, without being heavy. it takes up line so fast, it's like having a spinning reel.
I really like the reel, but plan on buying som photo equipment and something's gotta give. this is really a great deal. email me with any questions. Tom D
please everyone,email me if you're interested. I'd hate to sell it to the wrong person while someone was waiting for a response on the board. If I use email receive times, I'll know when the offer was made. Tom D
