There is true value in these reels
March 7, 2014
A great reel for the money,well built. I am 286 lb.s of fishin fool and while wading The Delaware river for stripers I went down and the reel took the full hit. I finished my day on the water because of the construction of that reel. Minimal damage to the handle but still very fishable. I own 4 of them, two 4500's and two 6000. They are not Stellas but for the money they are hard to beat.
Pros:Smooth action,great speed, awesome drag , all the power I need for 40 to 50 lb. stripers. Direct and to the point reel no flim flam.
Cons:A bit heavy
