    I bought my wife one and she has caught all kinds of nice flatheads on it, A few in the 30 plus lb range.

    I have a friend that owns several 808 and he swears by them. No problems.

    I have had them for year and my boys still use them. Good combo for chanel cats and more. The only draw back is no enough line capasity. I have 5 of them but now I use my baitcaster reels they hold more line. I still use them for cats and carp. CC has them for $24.95 great price for a combo. I like the drag on them too.
