The 8000’s metal spool with the AR-C, tapered-lip design has been designed to aid casting, and it really does make a difference, allowing line to flow easily off the spool. The two supplied spools have the same profile, but they are plastic. This makes a great fishing reel that’ll last for season after season, covering most situations you’re likely to encounter, both home and abroad. That said, its durability also suits it to spodding and marker work. In fact, I recommend it for any demanding situations.
