From the casting while testing the few I built, I like the feel of the 4-8. No trouble throwing anything u have in the bag. The next 4-8 on the rack will have similar layout w/o the 2 RV reduction guides . All single foots except the KW30 & KW25. The owner is using 65lb braid and my concern for bunching was our decision. Plus the expense of them helped make it too. Geez I wish they would offer the RV in stainless.
