I bought the 8wt Crest for a backup reel, it's a sealed drag and rated for salt. Anyone use them and what are your thoughts? If it holds up it has a great price point and looks good, lightweight. My main reels are Sage but if Piscifun works out...

And how is it pronounced, pis-key-fun or pie-ski-fun

I heard pie-see-fun in some of the reviews I've seen online. I'm curious to see what you think and how it holds up. I'm dubious as to whether it's a true sealed drag system, because a lot of companies on the market are claiming their drags are fully sealed, but that phrase is thrown around loosely IMHO.

I've got a 5 wt on my ready-rod (the one that stays in the truck at all times, just in case). I like it so far, but haven't had a fish to test the drag yet.

I also have the 8 wt on my saltwater setup, but I bought it over a year ago and haven't got it wet yet. It looks good, and feels good though.

So really, I can't lend any experience to you. Except that I share your thoughts and hopes.

And I believe it is pronounced pis-key-fun. The word comes from the Latin for fish,
