I attended the Saltwater Fishing Expo today and picked up a new Seigler Reel, formerly Truth Reels, formerly Release. Name changes due to legal trademark stuff.
I purchased their newly released SGN (small game narrow) in left hand retrieve, it weighs in at only 10.95 oz and holds 375 yds of 30# braid with 30 lbs.of drag. The reel comes in a heavy canvas bag instead of a box, no manual, wrench, or oil included as with some other manufacturers, (some information is on their website), but it did come with a "show special " aluminum shot glass milled at their facility from excess stock.
The reel is 100% Made in the U.S.A. so it fits right in with my patriotic pride. I plan on giving this reel a through workout this season, throwing it at everything that swims under the boat, and will post an evaluation sometime in the future.
