I have had this reel for 2 months. It's caught everything from largemouth to 5+ pound peacocks to 50 pound sharks and saltwater species. Actually I havent found the limit to this reel yet. No problems in the saltwater thus far. The simple design is great, and the drag and spool adjustments are easy; once you have it dialed in, you will not get a backlash no matter how hard you cast. I would have paid another $100 for this reel.
Drag is smooth and consistent and tires out fish fast.
Easy Clicking Adjustments
Versatile - I can use it in most freshwater and inshore situations
