Good bang for the buck
It's cheap so can't expect high performance. But for the price, it's worth every penny
ConsCan't complain for the price

Decent quality for the price
I bought one of these reels for musky fishing, and after a day on the water throwing big blades the gears went out. Abu honored the warranty and sent me a new one right away. I've used it a few more times, now only throwing smaller bucktails and swimbaits. Drag holds up well, and the low gear ratio makes for easy cranking all day long. Not bad for an entry-level musky reel.

Nice for the price
This reel is great for the price. Use it for catfish on lakes. Never had any issues using it in fresh water. Great reel and good price.
