Haven't bought a single speed reel in years. This seems too good to pass up.

Wonder how heavy the spool is (hope not like the ld mxl) and if their bearings improved any. Yikes 7+1 will get expensive. 1st arb in an avet? Havent bought an avet in 10 years since i first began offshore but in the market for the less exp. fathom II 25n for throwing jigs in the face of bfts. ill check the spool and overall weight when Mark Smith gets them in.
