Great reel! Very smooth drag. I paired this reel up with a blue water carnage 30-50 line class rod. I initially purchased the outfit for my Costa Rican trip but I wanted to test it out before then. I took it on an Alligator Gar fishing trip and it did great. I spooled it with 50lb Power Pro and it winched in several gar in the 50-90 lb range. The fish peeled off line but I was able to retrieve it just as fast. The reel did great! Can't wait to see what it can do against roosterfish and cubera snapper!
Pros:Smooth Drag, comfortable handle
Cons:A little pricey
