I am considering buying this reel to match my Assasin Beachmaster Medium. I havent found many reviews online. Any sealiners out there who have these reels?
Please post your review on this thread. Thank You.

The body of the reel has been manufactured from Air Metal. This is a magnesium based material which has been specially processed, ensuring that it is completely corrosion resistant. With this impressive anti-corrosive property, you can use the Tournament as successfully sea fishing as you can when carp fishing – safe in the knowledge that it is resistant to the usual destruction that saltwater can wreak.

Looks like the internals are good for saltwater fishing

Yeah I too had a quick google and can only see the general gist on the reels under a lot of the carp forums... Saw prices range from 450 to 550 quid :shock:
If I had the cash to fork out on it I would gladly do so!

What about the Shimano Ultegra XTB or something like that...is apparently a Bullseye according to Craig...

Just thinking availability on spares etc. and also a way bit cheaper! ;)

That's a steal! My friend has 4 of these that he uses for carp fishing and they are way better than any locally available reels of Shimano and Daiwa. Granted they are in a different price range too.

I have a Shimano Alivio DX 12-350 but don't have a reel.
Does anyone have recommendations?
