    just bought a pair of the 15s. seem very nice. light with 6 brake blocks. I engaged 3 blocks and cleaned a bit of the grease from inside and they went ok. Really need a good clean of the grease and i'll clean and redo bearings with yellow rocket fuel , that done they should speed up no end. with the way they were they never fluffed and was going around 160 yds with 20lb red ice on. Handle is nice and comfy too. got mine for £125 each from Rutherfords in Sunderland.

    yeah i saw that too, after i bought them however. If it happens i can take them back. would imagine the 25 would be a nice shadding reel, looks same size as a 535. I havent been fishing with them where i'll get a better opinion of them but 1st impressions are good.

    25 is bigger than a 535 woody,

    the 15 or 25 non level wind are beautiful reels, we have them in the shop if you want a look
