Sounds like a pretty good deal, just make sure the reel is in fairly good shape and doesn't look all beat up. That's probably a $135 reel new with $20 of braid on it.

I had bad luck with a spheros 8000. I found that the rotator arm contacts the spool under higher drag conditions, which results in the spool stopping and the line breaking. If you can squeeze the rotator arms with your fingers and see them flex, i would look for a different reel, or put it on a scale and test the reel.

BTW, i've now got an 18000 with metal arms (as opposed to composite) and it is an awesome reel so far.
