I am sure that I read somewhere that they are going to stop making them as there Fathom range has proved more popular.
I will only be out for a couple of hours pet.

Possibly mate. It's the same reel without the controls of the mag as far as I know. I've used both and don't find a great difference between either.

That might explain why they are selling off the surplus stock! Well worth the money for £80 quid though. I've had a 515 and 525 for about 4yrs and never had a single issue with them. Used and abused and still going strong!

Second thoughts.... Maybe the whole fixed spool and braid brigade are taking me away a lot of multiplayer sales! Price reduction to try and get a few shifted instead of gathering dust!

They are being discontinued Marc. Best time to get a new one for a bargain price. I've realised now that the Spiderwire code red is discontinued now, that's why it was cheap. The replacement is nowhere near as good imo, should have bought more while it was cheap.
