Best $80 reel on the market
February 28, 2015
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.
Pros:Price, smooth, sturdy, well made, good line capacity, comes in left hand
Cons:Only 11lbs drag
