    Hi Dominic,

    If they suit your budget then they will be fine BUT you do only get what you pay for!!!
    I dont know the reels in question, i would say that they will do the intended job but there will be better reels around.

    If you are serious about your fishing & by the look of the amount of enthusiasm and interest you show you will soon out grow reels like these.

    Maybe save your pennies up and get a couple of second hand reels at a later date, may take a little longer but in the long run buying something better will save you money.

      Go to your local tackle shop mate

        Does the fact you can buy 2 reels for a tenner not tell you all you need to know?

          To be honest Dominic
          Over the last 30yrs the technology in reels has come on in leaps & bounds
          Reels that are now for sale @ ridiculously low prices are better today than a reel that would have cost a weeks wages in the 80s
          A few years back during the change over from Closed face to open i started to use budget priced reels ,
          with the intention of changing them every 12 months
          I still have a few that are still in good order that are 20yrs old
          Dont be afraid to use a budget reel mate even if it only lasts 1 year it will be a bargain
          You can always upgrade your tackle as you improve
