Default hardy demon reels.

anyone have any experience with the reels? i cant find much online about them.

i think the cartridge spools are a cool idea.

thank you.

Default Re: hardy demon reels.

I have only handled the Demon reel. Of all the cartridge type reels on the market, I think that it is best in design. The machining of the frame and spool housing are top notch. The spool housing doesn't have any wobble (cannot comment after long term use). The drag seems has a good range for what each size is designed for.

Even though the Demon comes with extra cartridge spools, I would order some additional ones just in case the model gets discontinued.

Several years back, I used to own an Orvis Rocky Mountain reel and owned several spare cartridges. It was a nice economic way to have different lines ready to go.
