Are they easy to maintain or do then need stripped and cleaned all the time ?
I love the look and sound they make but worry how they hold up compared to a reel with a sealed drag etc.

They are pretty simple to maintain and are reliable reels. The drag does slightly weaken over time but still works well all the same. They are built to last.

I've been saving up for loop classic for that authentic yeeha im in noise. Had the cash there but just blew it on a load more top grade and fancy cork, alps reel seats and a load of rod tubes for all the blanks that I've just had made.
Should have saved up enough again by the spring. I'm determined to enjoy that scream when I get in about all those springers im going to catch :LOL:

Why not buy a marquis...cheap and just listen to that...no need to spend much to get that sound.... the hardest part is finding a fish like that these days....a proper fish.

That was one of the best fishing vids I've ever seen Colin. Fantastic. Just realised I've been watching your vids for years mate :LOL:
The young lads got a marquis. Can't wait to show him that vid mate.

Seriously Colin, nice fish well angled for, particularly think you deal with your fish very well indeed through the fight and specifically when it comes to beaching and unhooking.A few lessons there !.
Good stuff!.

Anyway... never mind Danialsson reels..

Here's what I'm into...and so is Scierra.

Salmon hitting the Sunray in slow motion.

Was hovering over the buy button for one of those reels last night. Any idea if the 7/9 is any good for a switch rod ? Sound great for the money.

I think they are great...wee bit bulky for a switch maybe but I'd use one on mine.
