Abu Garcia Got it Right
March 10, 2015
I've been using this reel for a season now, and I have to say I love it. The braking system is fantastic and does not require adjustment. The drag is smooth and I loke the drag clicker personally. Some may be turned off to the noise, but it doesn't bother me when I'm hooked up. The reel does make a good bit of noise when casting, this is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
The reel does exceedingly well with baits in the 1/2 oz and up range, any lighter and you may start to have some problems. I usually fish tandem 3/8 jig/gulp and topwater lures with this reel though so it does not affect me.
She is a little on the pricey side, but I think with regular maintenance it will last many years.
Innovative Braking System
Cons:A little noisy on the cast
