    I purchased this reel for my 8 year old son. I intended for it to last him throughout boy scouts. I paired it with 6'6" abu garcia pole. He can't cast it too well because the pole is too big for him. I've started using this setup because it blows all my other combos away. I had been using a spinning ugly stick set up until I realized this casts like 10 yards further. I also have two black max casting reels but no poles for them yet. So I will continue using this reel until I get a pole or my son gets the hang of his. If you are new to fishing and want something of quality that wont become obsolete as your skill improves then this is perfect.

    Had one back in mid 70's but it got stolen. Didn't know they still made them. The old one was made in Sweden but they're now made in China. I can't tell any difference in quality. If there is any flaw,it's that there is no audible sound when drag is working. Ordered it from Walmart online and had it shipped to my local store. It came in two days before they said it would,

    Pulled it out of the box, put it on a pole, and went fishing. Adjusted the drag and that was it. Will buy again as my other reels break.
