I own several of these reels for various purposes. They work great, cast smooth and have good wide-ranging drags. For the price I do not believe they can be beat, and they are even rated for saltwater use.
Now, if you are looking for that ultra smooth spinning reel to cast and retrieve lures all day - this ain't it. For bait fishing, jigging for Walleyes or a variety of other purposes it is an all around great reel. But, understand for the price you are not getting a top-shelf reel with 8, 10 or 12 bearings. So long as you get the limitations of what this reel can and can't do well you will be more than happy.
