I bought this reel earlier this week. WOW WHAT A GEM! I hauled in a 5 lb largemouth out of a flood control pond in Milan, IL with ease. I Love this reel.
This reel has it all. Ergonomic handle grip, super smooth bail return, silent, instant anti-reverse, 8 berings and just the right size for 4-6 pound line with a 5.2 retrieve ratio.
I have the Agility combo and I use it quite often -- as much as my more expensive rods and reels because...well, because it works just fine and has held up well to a year's worth of saltwater fishing. I like to take several rods/reels rigged for different purposes so I don't have to stand around tying knots when I could be fishing -- and this reel is usually one of them. This reel doesn't have quite the feel and smoothness of my Shimanos, but it's a fraction of the cost. Only problem was a slight scraping/grinding sound early on, but that was probably just a grain of sand, as it's gone now. For higher-end reels, though, I highly recommend Shimano at whatever price point you want to go to.
