„I have been priviliged to have been involved with Einarsson reels since the inception of the 9+ and have used the reel extensively on the Gaula and Stjordal rivers in Norway. This reel has been tested a long way past the normal point of destruction many times and comes through with flying colours year after year. This reel is simply bombproof - it has been dropped, dragged into the river, thrown on to stones, and still performs faultlessly on big salmon! As a guide my guests have used the Einarsson 9+ to land over 350 salmon in excess of 10kg over the last 4 seasons, with the 9+ being used to catch the biggest salmon in the Gaula in 2013 (20.8 kg) and 2014 (22.3 kg). The Einarsson drag is without a doubt the best I have ever used in 30 seasons guiding, and when this is combined with the engineering and strength of the Einarsson chassis you have a winning combination which will give you the edge when you are attached to your own 40 pounder.“
( Simon Kitcher guide at Gaula and Stjordal rivers in Norway )
„On my last trip to Norway and Russia I landed 24 salmon and lost only 3, which is a very unusally low number of lost fish. I can not prove it but I believe that the reel did so much in helping me land the salmon, thanks to the smooth brake. In short I was extremely pleased with my Invictus reel. It's easy for me to recommend this reel to all salmon anglers.“

„I am convinced that the drag system is the best available for playing lively fish. The cushioning effect of the spring removes start-up inertia as line is taken against the drag, perfect for awkward moments when fish jump or suddenly get a burst of energy at the closing stages of the fight. This is my favourite salmon reel, it will help you land more fish.“.
