Well, mine's an SL7. It has landed a 100#+ tarpon, a whole bunch of false albacore up to 15#, and a couple of very nice East Coast stripers. I'm not crazy about the incoming click sound and the fact that it does not have an outgoing click (which is fine for me in the SL7 or SL8-but I wish the smaller sizes had one) but the drag and overall operation are outstanding. They've caught some outrageous fish with it off the African Coast including a huge yellowfin tuna. In my opinion they are comparable to reels that sell for at least a few hundred dollars more.
