FX® FB Feature Details
Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent castability and manageability.
- Super Stopper®Super Stopper anti-reverse uses a multi-stop ratchet that nearly eliminates backplay in the rotor for solid hooksets. The Super Stopper anti-reverse can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counterbalancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
- Power Roller® II
This is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on the support to help line get onto the roller quicker.
Good reel for the price

This reel is only for a very casual, small game angler. In all honestly, the reel is not reliable or even good, but for 17.99, it's a deal. Just expect to have to buy another one every season if you fish saltwater. In freshwater, this reel would perform fairly well.
Cons:Too much plastic Poor materials Corrosion Bail flips on cast Drag can seize
