Alloy reel at a budget price. Suits 6/7 more than a 7/8. It would suit an 8 sinking line, but not a floater with any amount of backing. Alloy with clicker out disc drag and silent retrieve. Large arbor for fast retrieve. Well balanced and lightweight, but strong. Will stand some saltwater use, but like all reels you should wash it in soapy water at the end of the day. A bargain reel.
