thanks ....

thats baisically what i was thinking so far...

i cant find any write ups on it and so was looking for someone who'd had a play ith oe at least...

i've got a decent okuma and a real rubbish so like you say you get what you pay for with them.

they look nice enough and well put together, but you cant tell much form a pic..

my appologies on the spelling.....

this is all i could find about the reel.

i only ask about it, as it is going as a freebie with a subscription to 'sea angler' and was wondering if it was worth shelling out for a years magazines in one go rather than popping to the shop once a month when i pass. getting a reel for esentially nothing is swaying me, but my experience of low end okumas is not favourable. ( though i love the higher end stuff)

Aquios doesn't look that bad - one of the mid-range reels and no doubt a clone of one of the enormous, constantly name-changing range of Okumas.

On the face of it, the Sea Angler deal looks okay (assuming you want 13 issues), but beware rolling debits - ie. a year later they will continue taking a subscription unless you tell them otherwise.

Just a quick note folks:- FS reels are not really meant for hauling in large weed monsters, not sure that many multis are either. When it comes to it, I carefully get the weed in fairly close to the water's edge then put the rod down, wind the line around my arm a couple of times and keep hauling by hand until either it snaps or I manage to get the weed onto the beach where I can attack it.
