I've got one for an 8/9 line, but I haven't used it enough to suggest that it's a quality item. However, initial appraisal looks pretty good: the drag is smooth, fit and finish are good, and the reputation this reel has in the Northwest is pretty high. The only caveat is that the finish is not anodized, I've heard, although it's hard to tell by looking at it. I've heard of people chipping the finish.

Tomorrow, I might have more info-- assuming I can hook something...
