I have one in size 9/10, it's okay but I don't like the v-spool. In that price range and style I prefer the Lamson Liquid it has a U shaped spool which I think lays down the backing better. The Behemoth does have more capacity though.
Here they are side by side They both have 200+ meters of backing and an 8wt line on the Liquid and a 10wt line on the Behemoth.
The Behemoth has 30-40 meters of additional backing.

I’ve not used one but I’m impressed with the drag on them as they would stop a horse.

A guy I know took it for bones in Cuba & couldn’t speak highly enough about it.

Thanks chaps. I’d not noticed that the arbour is quite small. If you’ve got a lot of line out and a fish runs toward you I’d fancy more pick up. But, the price is good. I’ll look at the Lamson too now.

Look in classifieds… Guideline Haze, can’t understand why it’s not sold at that price!
I have no connection to the seller, but I would say it’s superior to the Behemoth. (& not too big)
I had a Lamson Liquid and the paint finish started coming off just looking at it! :ROFLMAO:

PS. I nearly bought it before the price drop… and I’ve too many reels anyway!

Unfortunately I’m after a 7/8 single hander not a switch/Spey.
