Well, just bought this reel a few weeks ago. Iit's brand new and never ben fiishd. I'm starting to buy piece by piece my summer weight fspey rod. By suggestion of a friend, I bought this reel for the 7wt 13' I plan to buy soon. Ran into a deal on a Lamson sppey reel and will put this uup for sale. Don't need it. It holds I do believe a WF9F with 250 yards of backing. Has sppare spool and box. I paid almost $100 for itWill sel for $85 and I'll cover shipping in the US 48. I stretched myself buying the Lamson, so need to get rid of this reel.
