Why don't they last a long time? If you take care of your gear there isn't any reason why that should not last for as long as needed, reels are a very precise piece of engineering and there for should be looked after and serviced according. As for getting spare spools, well why not just get them when they are available so once and if they become discontinued you will have plenty. I've never had a bad experience using foxes after sales service either.

They do everything the more expensive reels do

Apart from last a long long time & have a warranty service that is worth having!!!! If you don't mind the high possibility of having to change them every few years or not being able to get spare spools etc for them once they are discontinued, then they aren't bad at all. I have EOS10000 reels on my pike rods as they don't get the amount of use as the carp gear does so couldn't justify spending hundreds for a couple of trips a year.

I got the 10000 version last year and love them, very smooth, well made and cheap, caught a load on them in france already and didn't miss a beat

I use these and I really do like them tbh. They do everything the more expensive reels do, the line lay is excellent, fairly quick retrieve and a quick clutch. I have had no problems with then what so ever.
