Don't waste your time or money
May 4, 2015
I am an avid fisherman and bought this reel on the recomendation or a prominetnt professional fishing guide in texas. I have never had so much trouble with a reel.
Having owned calcutta, curado and lew's reels and used them extensively, i have never had as much trouble with a reel. When i first got it the issues were with the casting brakes and I tried adjusting every which way to no avail. I clean and apply reel butter to all my reels after every trip. The more I used this reel, the worse it got. What a shame to spend $ 270 on a reel and be so totall frustrated. Went back to my Curado ro save my sanity. Last thing needed on a fishing trip is frustration. Save your money!
