A very good value, but not for salmon/ steelhead 10/21/2010

I put this reel to the test by fishing for fresh, big steelhead in Oct 2010. The reel casts like a dream and functions very smoothly. The price is great, too. My complaint has to do with the drag. After day 4 the drag began to jump at a very modest (relative to the 20+ lbs of drag possible) 6lb setting. I think that the initial drag stress -- intertial drag -- is where the problem lies. But this jumpy drag caused me to pull the reel off front line duty and revert to my Shimanos. I recommend the Revo for non-salmon/ steelhead applications as I don't think that the drag problems I experienced are going to apply to, e.g. most bass fishing situations.
