Electric Reels

    Recommended Posts

    we use Ryobi dendau 100/101..and find them very good..we fish browns mtn off Sydney 400/500 mtrs and the shelf canyons off Swansea 300/450 mtrs...the ryobis hold 900 mtrs 80lb braid in thin quality  stuff...ebay worldwide and you can pik them up for less than $350.00...rick

    not many reels have the line capacity of these when using 80lb in deep water ..we have 5 between my mates and I and have had no probs with them..we took guys to browns with daiwas and others and they couldn't hit bottom in 500mtrs with the angle of drifting...these size reels on bent butts are left in the rod holder..in 480mtrs takes twenty mins to hit the surface...rick

    The specs on the WFT 1200 says it holds more line, faster retrieve speed and has a heavier drag than those old Ryobi's.

    No doubt they would be a good reel but not practicable when wanting to use them while hanging onto a rod like you can with the newer style of reels.

    I don't think I'd like to be chasing down parts for them either.
