Hi, I saw this on eBay and it looks like a nice reel for the price..... don't know anything about these though. It is located in Campbell River according to the ad. :)

I have one, and to be honest i prefer my Shimano 4000gt'S.
They are a knock off of the Islander down to detail, but I have had problem with "line creep" while fishing off the downrigger.
I even changed the cork to a bigger one, and it's still not right.
Thinking about the Trophy XL for next time. ;)

HI, I Have or HAD the TFO First Trip to River's 1 Fish and the a 25 cent Spring broke. Repaired.... Next the to QC's upgraded spring broke. Repaired.... Last summer thrid trip to Port Renfrew Had all the line creep and drag issues one could handle so I took all the gear off the line and removed from the rod had happly threw over broad. I have 2 Shimano 4000's they are great for the price. and 1 Islander that I found on ebay. Save your money. They are are not worth the money, or at least mine was not. I do have 3 TFO Mooching rods and like them.
