    Why not just the regular 808 or the 808SW? Seems like with that 808BOW,you,re just paying extra for the braid that comes on it.:wink:.

    That 808SW they got has the same listing for the line out alert,don,t know what that actually is,but they both got it.The 808SW is listed as having stainless bearings too,plus it has a metal cover instead of plastic.:wink:

    If it's the same reel I've seen it has an audible bite alert that has a red flasher as well. I thinking about getting one for my stepbrother. I've heard they're pretty decent.

    That's a hawg seeker that's what I'm replacing I'm getting the 808bowfisher braid has a teflon coating on it to slide over pick-ups and through eyelets,I've seen a shakespeare spincast with the same clicker type bait alarm almost like freespool click that off then the fight is on.

    Well it came yesterday the braid that is on it is like a shoestrings and the bait alarm is a switch that is and anti reverse switch I'm not too pleased with it but I'll use it.
