I have it in a 7/8. I use it on my 7wt for Largemouth. Very light, pretty good drag, my only complaint is the line will sometimes end up behind the spool due to the skeleton style frame.

Bill,

Who says those reels don't look nice? The OC. is in great condition and is probably older than I am. Nice,

Casey,

You are becoming a reel lover judging by the number of pictures you are able to produce.

Hello, i was wondering if anyone here could get a picture of the galvan torque reel (perferably the clear color) on the winston burled maple seat?! Or even comments on the torque (T-5) Thanks!

that line reminder on the OC is something I wish the reel guys were using today. (I KNOW NAUTILUS HAS PROVIDED A SPOT TO WRITE IT ON THE FWX SPOOLS.) There must be other ways of doing the same thing.

When I sold that reel the wear seen in the picture had only worn off the black finish and while it looks dramatic there is no groove worn into the frame. This occurred over years of very heavy use, those Loop/Danielsson reels are made to last..
