If the xsc is anything to go on id say it should be cracking reel. Super slow oscillation has to be bonus
Target for 2017: Tope, Bass, Specimen shore pollack, Specimen Sea trout, Turbot over 30cm, common skate

I have a pair of XSD for a year now ... can't fault them . Line lay great with the slow osalation . I find the handle could be more robust but it's fine and not a problem ...
Kstaff has always been the new black in my eyes anyway!!!!!!!

Thanks! Loads of praise about the slow oscillation, how do you find the drag setting? And what length of rod do you recommend?
