shimano navi 8000 have one on my supercast it is the dogs nuts & bolts :clap3:Please can anyone reccomend a really good fixed spool for beach and pier fishing as my new grauvelle zeus 5000 is a nice reel its just that i need one more so i can take two rods out? any one who can reccomend would be much appreciated.
Thank you but how light do you mean because i need one for a all year rounder.bought a penn 750 surfmaster it's a good reel cast's well they were selling for £50 so not a bad choice . it's ideal for some lighter fishing or if need be you can load some heavyer line on the spare spool for a change of tactics
The thing about the 8000 series shimanos Biomaster Aerlex etc is the ratio. 3-1 or there abouts. When you get up to and past 4-1 ratio winding in is hard work. The shimanos have the handle length just right. Good longer length not too short and makes winding in nice and smooth.sounds good to me.
SOUNDS REALLY GOOD TO MEShimano Biomaster xsa by a long shot. I have always used Shimano's for coarse and Sea fsihing and haven't picked up and turned another fs that comes close. I've got an old (about 10 years) Titanium Bisomaster Aerlex and it's the best FS Sea reel I have ever used. Bought the cheaper normal Biomaster xsa 8000 for about £90 and that's almost as good but the bodies materials are not as good (cats metal rather than plastic & titanium) and the line roller isn't as good a design as the Titanium one. A new Titanium xsa 8000 is a few hundred quid now!
