Default Fin-nor reels??? Any comments?

Stats and prices look pretty good on these reels wondering if anyone has had any experience they would be willing to share?

I have a 7500 it is a tank. Downfall is that it is big, bulky, and heavy but it can handle just about anything.

Default Not bad

Used two new 80w in Bahamas along side the alutechnos. Fins worked fine but they were new and did not really put them under great stress. Stemmed very solid and smooth. Might be made in China which would make me wonder why they are so expensive. I probably would buy something else made in USA or Shimano if I was shelling out that much but that is up to your pref. Reels were nice.
