Have purchased several spin cast reels for younger beginning children and this reel seems to hold up better and cast easier than most of the others so far. Comes with a good line weight for most pond fish. The actions are smooth and quiet with good gear ratios for most lures.

I went bream fishing with a friend of mine the other day who used a new Shakespeare ugly cast reel. I always use a Zebco micro-cast reel because I can throw further with it than I can with the Zebco 33 reels. He was able to throw further with his ugly cast than I could with my micro-cast and the ugly cast has 10 lb test line vs. the micro-cast's 4 lb test. Also every time I caught a fish on the micro-cast I had to pull the tightness out of the reel so it would cast the distance. He never had to do this. I was so impressed with it I bought three of these. Fantastic reel.
