Do you use the fox eos 12000 reels that are in question? No you don't, and don't give me ' I have the 10000' blah blah. You don't have them so shut up

'First impressions are very good indeed'. The lad has only posted four times since he joined, I wonder if the replies on this thread have ensured he will never bother to post again? I wonder what his first impressions of carp forum are?

I thought Post 7 reply was a reasonable review for someone who has just bought them , especially as he finished with

""Time will tell if they last and if they stay this good. First impressions are very good indeed. ""

Nope he didn't say they had not missed a beat.
Try reading the words the man typed instead of trying to belittle him.

Where do you want me to start? Companies are not going to do sub £100 reels that are going to last a lifetime as it does not help their profit margin. Most cheap reels are filled with cheap low quality bearings to make them feel "super smooth" but once these wear away, the reel will soon fail. Once the reels are no longer produced, you will NOT get any spares at all from them so if the reel fails in any way, you are up the creek without a paddle & new reels time! Dedicated reel manufacturers such as Shimano & Daiwa have dedicated service centres where they can resolve issues with reels going back decades. Fox don't & that is guaranteed! People who had the reels prior to the EOS range have had to buy new sets of reels when one has failed due to not being able to get the parts to get Magnesium bodied reels repaired. Why do you think Daiwa, Shimano & other reel service centres have a set service fee for even looking at the reels let alone doing work to them? It is to stop people sending them cheap reels to repair when they can spend another £10 and get a new reel off the shelf. Would you send a £60 reel away every 12 months at a cost of around £30 just to take a look before any parts are included? NO, you wouldn't if you had any sense about you as you would wait until it gave up completely, then buy a new one at whatever price was available or a new set. Spending £150+ on a reel makes more sense as the reel is generally going to have proper bearings in the right places (why do you think a £60 reel is going to have 10 bearings in it when a £200+ reel is only going to need 5?) & if you need to have it serviced, it is not the cost of a new reel almost. Why do you think 20yr old+ Daiwa reels are still available nowadays? If they have a problem, they can be serviced easily & it is very rare that they do have problems. I would have a bet with anyone that a 20 year old Fox reel that has never had a service will not be working properly if used week in, week out like some of the Emblems you see on the banks which still have spod mix on them from a decade ago!

So I recently brought these at the carp show just 2 days ago. And so far, I canít fault them. The line lay is excellent, the clutch is fast and smooth, and the casting capabilities are superb. There very light for a big pit.

I got them on the bank the day after the Brentwood show. Got the line lay bedded and I really canít fault them. Time will tell if they last and if they stay this good. First impressions are very good indeed.

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 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.
