Default Re: Old reel - new era question

You could get an 8wt on the reel if it were a VERY weight forward configuration, but even with a bit of 20# backing you'll fill the reel to the rim .. and maybe then some. The 1494.5, and larger, will hold an 8wt with greater ease.

As for the age of the reel, doubt there's a whit's bit of difference (the insides) of this one and a new one out of the box.
