    My husband and I bought two of these reels after a lot of research, very smooth, long casting, perfect for light inshore fishing. Lots of flounder caught, along with nice sized redfish and speckled trout. We would buy these again!!

    I haven’t owned a lot of reels, but this one is definitely nice. It reels smooth, it’s light weight, the anti reverse sets hooks like a champ.
    All the other reels I’ve owned were about half the price, and I can tell the differences with this reel. Every thing about it is just better, and it’s not really that expensive. Considering I use to buy 40 dollar reels when I made 4.25 an hour. So it seemed about time to buy a little nicer reel. And for the money this is a really nice reel.
