A superb little tool that is unbelievably, still a serious, competent performer

Just brilliant. Strong and perfect for the purpose. The only shame is that the reel seat isn't a bit more able to accept standard reel feet, so you can use a better 1000 size reel, so that you can use the drag, which is not up to scratch on the included reel. Saying that, tighten the front screw down and use back wind and everything is soooo coool. I think that the reel is a sort of copy of a Silstar Tiny, from the late 80's. That being the case, the bail spring will definitely go, so even more reason to either replace it by elastic banding a better 1000 reel on to the reel seat or just use it for float fishing. A superb little tool that is unbelievably, still a serious, competent performer. Usual rule, use it within its limits and it will be just fine. I just wish Daiwa or Greys would see this niche in the market and make a quality, high performance version for £80.
