$0.99 no discount :rofl:

I noticed the last two (or three) freams models are now using aluminium body. Used to have zaion body like the caldi, luvias and all.
Still, this little 2000 reel is only 190gm. Compact design like Shimano's. Previous 2000 models have bigger body and spool. 5kg drag on 2000 reel is sufficient enough.

Pretty happy. Now I need to find a good 4lb braid line on sale from a shop that does machine spooling...
Nice one Seb!
Got it for a good price :)

Nice reel! When you say good braid on sale, do you mean you will get a spool on sale and then ask them to spool it for you, or are you talking about the store doing it from their bulk spools?

Both/either.
I know Trellys Laverton does both. They have in bulk and able to spool it as much as needed. They can also help to spool of a 150m/300m line pack thing.
When I was at Trelly's Laverton, they had only 4lb Jbraidx4 and next up was 10lb Jbraidx8.
I'm thinking to get a 5lb or 6lb. Even if 4lb, I won't use jbraidx4.

Sounds like you have it sorted. My local store has a great range of bulk spooled lines to choose from. It is too easy to get them to do it and cheap as they get the bulk line cheap. The last reel I got them to do, a small baitcaster, was done with 8 strand Sufix for free. On saying that, it helps that I bought the reel from them and spend about $5 mil there a year!
