    That's a great price mate. How do they hold up against Bar Cod or Blue Eyes?

    Brad I think those ones are pretty old school and quite bulky reels.

    If they are what I am thinking of, you are better off with a WFT or something that is more comfortable to use when hanging onto the rod.

    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.

    You won't get any cheaper than that Brad.

    Stick with the 1200 if you want to go out deep chasing some ooglies.

    was thinking of just buying the 700 the 1200 seem too big for what i want to use it for  dont plan on going any where over 150 meters
