Ive used these reels for years. To wring the best performance out of them use medium oil (rocket fuel) and one tiny white block. They cast very well when overfilled with line ie filled to the brim or even slightly humped. Its a case of trial and error to find the best level to suit. I tend to fill mine with 20 or 25lb ultima f1.

Be careful using too light line tho as the spools "do" go pop if fishing at range and winding in dogs etc.

Fishing distance wise they are almost on a par with a 525 mag.

For ultimate distance on the lighter line tho you need a proper tuned 6500.
