If you fish for catfish or other large species, this is about the best bang for your buck you are going to find. The reel is smooth casting and on the retrieve, with a good drag and plenty of pulling power due to the low gear ratio. A great reel for beginners or occassional fisherman. Just push the button and throw it out, day or night. As to line, I would go with a quality line like Berkley Big Game or Stren in a 15-17 lb weight. The line that comes with it is OK, but it is very stiff, heavy and will not cast that well. A great product from Zebco!
