Very good reels

I bought two of these reels, a FX1000, and a FX2500. Both are very well built and work smooth. They cast well and have a good drag.The 1000 size is an ultralite and the 2500 size is a medium-lite reel. If there is a negative it is that the distance from the rod grip to the spool is a little long for my finger when trying to slow the line payout on a cast. That said I do have short fingers, but it hasn't been an issue with the other spinning reels I own.Still I use these frequently and highly recommend them.
