    Hi Everyone,

    Justin is supposed to send me one to review but he keeps selling all that he can get his hands on. Let us know what you think about the reel when you get it.

    Frank, I have the 7/8. It's spooled up but I haven't used it yet. So far for the price, I'm impressed. It did come in with a right hand retrieve and I wasn't sure how to switch it over. Justin emailed me and he put up some instructions on how to switch it over. But with an 8w, I'm leaving it RHR. It's a lightweight, balanced reel with some tight tolerances. 3 years ago, I doubt if you could get a reel this good from China. Now it seems to be the norm.
    This is THE REALreel you can not ill afford to get.

    I ordered the 7/8. Justin is great to work with. Can't wait to spool up the reel and cast it to some lawn carp....if this snow would ever disappear.
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    I ordered the 5/6wt XL and the 12/14wt Alpha. Very nice reels with a good drag. Justin was great to work with and very responsive to questions. Can not wait to try them out....Unfortunately the forecasts keep calling for more snow !!!
