airflo 40+

Post by twoaitch on Tue May 27, 2014 7:20 pm

Anyone else got this problem? Just bought a wf8 40+ and tried to put it on my Greys gx500 6/7/8 reel, removing backing to allow line to fit, and am left with hardly any backing and the line still fills the spool. Anyone know of a cheapish reel that will take 40+ and a reasonable amount of backing?

Surely that can't be right as the gx500 and gx700 spools are interchangeable( same size?).

I've just bought a 40 + extreme which has a shorter, fatter belly and have no problems with my reel Okuma Airframe, £39 99 with 3 spare spools, ( 4 in total ) in a case, great value !
