I bought one of these on a whim last year. Honestly, it was marked down to $18 bucks, so
I do have to say, I am impressed.
Very smooth drag and line uptake. Also, very "strong feeling".
Steady smooth retrieve at all speeds is excellent for lures requiring constant
reeling like inline spinners, rattletraps, etc. No rough spots.
I've had good luck with the new "standard" 33's, of which I've heard compared as equals to the "old" 202's of yesteryear. That comparison may be true.
Having said that, this one truly does
seem like a better quality reel.
Especially if you like spin-cast's for larger species than crappies and bream.
I've hauled in 5-6lb Largemouths, 8-12lb cats with no prob on the regular 33s.
This one could only be better.
