Works good, wish was same qualities
as last 30 years of Abu Garcia, but alas, for modern gear, it is good quality and actions
ProsAll features work good, Clicker Adjustable spool tension Adjustable drag Rebuildable Reliable
Cons●Spool release is touchy, and too modern with plastic instead of good old steel and brass ● level wind guide will need adjustment of tension /pressure out of the box

I have fished this reel and variations of same for as long as I can remember or near about 50 years. While this is most probably the least expensive reel I would consider buying, in my opinion dollar for dollar as an all around solid performer, if your in the market for a good reel this one is hard to beat.
