    Well I took the gamble and bought one in the 2000 size have not had a chance to fish yet but having a bit of a play I do really think it will give all of my stradics a big run for the money and at $219 at the moment it's a bargain I do know one bloke around here who used to fish on that ABT the Australia bream tournament TV show he's got a rew of them and reckons for the money they are unbeatable time will tell cheers

    I don't think you can go wrong with a Daiwa no matter what reel, that looks a really good choice plenty of drag. What are you putting on it Braid or Mono? Have you seen the Suffix Advanced Mono specs worth a look it is all I use now have been using it for about a year now and personally love it. Let us know how it goes.

    It's not bad Wally funny thing is it is only 2 oz lighter than my Pflueger rods and Stradic 2500 reels but where it wins is all the weight is at the bottom end , from the for grip up the rod is less than half the weight of the pflugers gives you the Illusion that its an ultralight outfit a pleasure to cast and work absolute pleasure ......

    It does Blair but I do have one criticism the clicker on the spool is not loud enough I must be getting deaf although I have no trouble hearing my five stradics

    A good sound to hear when line being pulled out by a fish. I am sure a man of your abilities can work out how to make it louder. My fly reel must be audable 100+ meters away.

    G'day all just so you know the only difference between a freams LT and a Exceler LT is one is magsealed and the other is not , I wish I had of known before $80 just for a less than 10 ml of oil I don't think so not again ......
    Anyway I bought a new exceler LT 5000 for snapper fishing ......
