By far the best reel I've ever owned; its smooth as silk, looks wonderful, feels wonderful and the drag is super smooth, with no issues. Its a 5000 with 65 pound Sufix 832 braid and paired with my rod, it can cast around 100 yards or so (perhaps even farther; need to better my technique!).
The retrieve, as mentioned, is super smooth and it isn't that tiring to reel in, which I thought it would be at that size.
Surprisingly smooth and durable! Great drag sensitivity as well...just a solid good looking reel that will last a long time if you just take care to service it as you should...
