Smooth As Silk
July 25, 2014
First off, one of the smoothest reels I have ever used. One thing I can't stand is when the handle wobbles around due to cheap bearings. There is zero wobble on this real. The line lay is even and smooth as well. It actually held a little more line then advertised. I spooled it with Diamond Braid 30lb and got just shy of 500 yards on it. I paired it with an 11' Penn Torque Surf Rod and getting a cast out past the breakers is a piece of cake. 100 yard easy as pie with 4 oz. Don't hesitate if you are considering this real, buy it. To me the live liner is a must have as well if you're slinging live bait.
Pros:Very even and tight line lay, very smooth action, great drag system
Cons:Would be nice to have a louder clicker when live lining.
