Absolutely love every thing about this reel. I have caught 35 pound bull reds off the jetties and 10 pound snapper with this reel offshore I can't say enough good thing about it.

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.
