:confused: A old loop Evotec 9therteen was offered to me. The reel is new in the box. Is there something that’s against a purchase speaks? Is the reel a good deal? It looks very nice and has plenty room of line space.

Thanks for your experiences

That's a fine reel. There were no design flaws of which I'm aware. It was a little heavy for many single-hand rod applications, but that's not a concern for spey use. If I remember correctly, the drag was cork in the original where it's carbon fiber in the latest models. It's a deal if you're not paying too high a price for it. Anything under $500.00US is probably fair (if truly in mint/new condition) and anything much under that is a great price.

The reel stands with a dealer in a showcase. It gives also first owners warranty to me! The price is 480 USD (400EUR). Were there really different brakes ????

I owned a smaller version of that reel. For $480 US I would by and Evotech LW or spring for $100 more and buy an Evotech HD. (I am talking eBay prices.)
