Nice reel that performs well
To be fair, I rated this reel 4 out of 5 stars because I didn't get much use with it before the ice season ended. I am using it on a 25" light Fenwick rod with 4 lb Trilene Micro Ice line and small jigs tipped with wax worms for panfish. I am more familiar with spinning reel rigs, but once you have the Descent adjusted with the right amount of fall for the total weight of your lure, and the drag set correctly, presenting the bait at the right depth is quick and easy. Unlike spinning reels, there is no rotation of the bait due to line twist so a swivel isn't necessary. I didnt have any issues to speak of other than some experimentation necessary to get the fall adjusted correctly. If the reel is set to allow too fast a fall, it will continuing spinning and releasing line after it reaches the bottom. No problem really even at that. When In shallow water, I found myself stripping line off to the right depth against the drag rather than releasing the reel; a habit from using spinning reels I suppose. Either way, the reel worked as expected. No complaints. For the most part, we were only fishing in 8' -10' of water but it could just as easily have been 18'. Overall, I am pleased with the way this reel handled on open ice in 10 to 20 degree weather. In fact, I bought a second Descent and will use it on an ultra-light rod. I may update this review next season after more extensive use.
ProsLightweight, easy to set up and go.
ConsDrag is not super smooth, but adequate nevertheless.

New Jersey's offshore waters are bustling with marine life right now, like true Nat Geo type of situations with thousands of dolphin, whales, tuna and sharks proliferating in the bluewaters. I just stepped off the boat from a mako trip, and after releasing... Read More
