Release SG?

797 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Catch This
I have the opportunity to buy a very lightly used release SG for 175, the silver and red version. I've read a lot about them, 30+ lbs of claimed drag, a pretty decent spool capacity and they're supposedly super light. Unfortunately I've never seen one in person or much less fished one. So does anyone have experience with this reel? 175 is little bit cheaper than any I can find elsewhere for sale, but I would rather not spend it, if the reel doesn't live up to its name, regardless of how good of a deal it might be.

I have an LG that I troll with and like it a lot.. I use it for the WTFB line because of gearing and strength of the reel. It is not the SG so I hope this helps. Knowing what I know about these reels, I would jump on it for $175.
