Nice, Smooth Reel for Big Fish. 11/10/2014
Customer review by Dalaw1960

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this reel for the price. Casts and retrieves well and very smooth. Reel feels and operates like a reel that should cost 3-4 times as much. I have many of the so-called "high-end" reels and this one is as smooth as any of them.
This is a Medium/Heavy Reel for larger freshwater species. I bought this as a back-up reel for one of my catfish rigs, but after having tried it out, it might move up to first string!
No 5 stars because I have not owned it long enough yet to see how it will hold up over time.
As to the reels specs, it holds 230 yards of 20lb test, or 300 yards of 15lb test. The reel has 4 bearings and weighs 13.8 ounces. This reel does not have instant anti-reverse, it uses a pawl and gear system. This reel is also equipped with a switch that you can turn the anti-reverse off if you feel the need to reel backwards (some people fight fish that way instead of using the drag.)
