You know I bought this $11 reel for my kids rods after their reels broke, but I liked them so much I bought another for myself. It outcasts and outfights all of my other more expensive reels by a mile. You have to buy one and try it out. It is a awesome reel for the price. Sure it doesn't have all the fancy features that most people don't use anyway, but it just works, get one, you won't go wrong.
I bought this reel over 5 years ago and is STILL THE WORKHOURSE in my collection of rods & reels. I use it for catfishing & game fishing almost everyday and though I use Cajun Lighting Line I LOVE it. Beleive it or not it is the most used of all my fishing weapons and is by far the best I ever found. I have landed catfish over 15 pounds using my "Old Horse". It has out preformed other high dollar reels from competetors like Cabelas. It beats my $150 reel hands down. As comment bout this I'm getting ready to go and get 2 more because they are better the my beloved Zebco 33's that are also over 15 years old. The only thing that they could do better is to put Cajun Line on them. I use Cajun Line on everything and I LOVE that RED LINE.
i go tthis like 3 or 4 years ago, in that time ive caught thousands of bass anc panfish, ive caught 3 14 lb. catfish with it, i always had 10-12 lb. line on it and worked great.it broke 1 day when the garage door closed on it and broke the handle, i would get another, but i have another, and 3 other reals and im gonn catfish mostly
I bought two reels, give the Walmart RD 30 a try, it's smooth and response well.
I have to say it is a very easy to use reel . I love my reel !
