Default Re: Reel Love; the Fly Reel Picture Thread

Couple of new reels to me. Sage 8080Pro and Abel Super 7.
The 8080 Pro has 300m of 70lb braid and a 10WF SW line...not bad for an 8wt reel!!! Quality is pretty astounding (even for off shore-Korea) with a uber smooth drag which has an incredible range. looking forward to giving a go in Belize next month.

The Super 7 has approx 200m of backing with a WF8 SW. I wanted a lighter reel to match the TFO BVK and Orvis Helios rods I have. I'll to wait and see if this experiment works! (maybe I should have got a Super 8!?)
