Light weight reel for 40lb line
March 29, 2014
I mounted this reel on an ugly stick Tiger Lite jigging rod. Excellent fishing experience. Controls are easy to manage.and the light weight of the reel makes the combination a pleasure to use. I have arthritis in the fingers of my right hand. Nevertheless the reel handle was easy to grip and the light weight of the reel made it easier to balance the rod without a heavy reel flopping to one side or another.. As for cranking effort, the handle length is adjustable but I was was able to manage
at the factory high speed setting. I didn't hook up with a "big one" so I had no chance t try out the drag system.
Pros:Light weight, control placement, smooth operation, lever drag, reel capacity
