For what use ?
Are we talking about their offshore conventionals, inshore, spinning...................... ????????

Looking at them from a general perspective, Accurate makes the best of the best, and you'll pay for it.

I have a Boss 270 I use for livelining and bridge chunking from the ground and boat chunking. For what I use it for it's a truly great reel and incredibly powerful. However, it was not designed for beach casting, it'll cast but don't expect much.

Im sorry so little info given. I should have known better.
I was thinking for plugging from the surf. I saw one for $400 Twin spin 12 and was looking for a comparison to VS.

If you can get a Twinspin for $400 you should grab it just to resell it - they go for $800.

However, for the surf they're way, way, waaaay too heavy and are not at all sand friendly, the tolerances are too close.

For offshore boat work they may be the best spinning reels ever built.
