Can't beat the price,I did manage to break the rod on the handle. Emailed southbend mailed it back and they replaced it. Just to give you an idea of the strength I was hooked into a 8 foot alligator.

Nice, Smooth Reel for Big Fish.

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.)

They need to put more of the specs on here I had no idea that it was going to be as big as it was. I think the lowest the recommended line weight goes is 15lbs.

THE FIRST TIME I USED THIS PRODUCT I NOTICED THE DRAG MADE NO SOUND WHEN BEING PULLED. THE SECOND TIME I WENT OUT FISHING THE CONTROLLER TO REEL FORWORD AND BACKWARDS BROKE. I MYSELF DON'T LIKE TO DOWNGRADE A PURCHASE, BUT MAYBE THIS WILL HELP SOMEONE NOT TO HAVE TO GO THOUGH WHAT I DID.

Very good for the price and capacity with 20 pound test. Comparing this reel with others with the same size in the store, this is the best.

Enjoyed use of the reel since day one. Cast is smooth and reel is smooth and quiet. The additional bearings make it a fluid moving reel. Handle is reversible for right or left hand operation and there is an anti-reverse switch. Does stick a little on initial retrieve, but not bad enough to cause problems, may just be stiff from being brand new. Very enjoyable and would highly recommend for a low cost "Big Water" reel.
