Long-Casting and Smooth cranking
November 24, 2013
I like the reel quite a bit so far. I would have liked to have had handle options - I don't like the round handle very much as my hand tends to slip off sometimes. I haven't had a single wind knot as of yet - which is a huge plus! My two other reels that I use normally (Quantum Smoke PTS), do have wind knots at least once each during a fishing session. I think the lip of the spool on the Stradic is smoother, which prevents the knots from occurring.
Pros:long casting, smooth cranking
Cons:round knob for handle
