Best $80 reel on the market

I fished this reel, actually two of them, were my catfish reels for 2 years. Awesome beginner reels, price is great, work great. Very smooth and solid. Don't waste your money on ABU's junk $80 reels. This reel in the 400/401 size is great. The drag is fine for fish up to about 25-30lbs, and they'll definitely work it a bit. I caught many 15-20lb flatheads on this reel with ease. Casts far, love these things.
ProsPrice, smooth, sturdy, well made, good line capacity, comes in left hand
ConsOnly 11lbs drag Clicker switch is in a weird location
