However all the high-tech materials don't mean a thing if the entire assembly relies on a flimsy piece of molded styrene plastic thinner than a toothpick. This is a weakest-link example if there ever was one. I estimate that the reel in question had less than twenty hours of use from four trips to a local pond. Yesterday the spring guide, (part # 1201836), a part of the bail locking/release mechanism, broke. Without it the bail will not stay closed or open, it just flops between the two positions when attempting to retrieve the line. The same part number appears in the schematics of the 8230 Supreme as well as the two lightest XT versions, the 9025 and the 9030.
That means that 5 of the 6 reels I own have this same weak piece in them. I have to think about that now on every cast so I can remember to baby these reels to last as long as possible. That just plain takes the fun out of using them for me.
The worst part is the waste of all the other things that were so good about the reels. Keep your carbon fiber handles and give me something that I can trust.
The only knock on this reel that I have is the foam handle. I personally love the slim rubber style, and this foam design is a little thicker and slightly less comfortable than I would prefer, however, this is just grasping for anything to possibly a preference and does not take away from the overall high performance of
