Default Fin Nor Spinning Reels OFS9500

Need to add two heavy duty offshore spinning reels. Does anyone have any experience with Fin Nor spinning reels and in particular with the OFS9500

I have mine loaded up with 100lb JB Hollow for BFT, Mahi, Etc. A lot of people I fish with have used them for years with good success on all types of fish. Nice beefy reel at a decent price.

I have had 2 for about 3 years. Very good reels with good drags for the money. Reels are heavy but thats what you get when they are all metal.

Nice reels had two 8500's. Drag went on one but was easily fixed. A little heavy compared to some other reels with similar applications.

Great reels for the money. You get a reel that holds a ton of braided line and has heavy drag.

Oh, thanks for linking to me too :D We're giving you free cajun braid with these.
