would still be an amazing reel at double the price!

The lt100 is a beast of a reel(the pic is next to a penn senator 113h). It is huge, heavy, and tough. I've used it for every type of fishing you can think of. It truly excels at vertical jigging with its huge drag range and large braid capacity. The manual bail is a huge plus when slinging 8 and bait (and sometimes more!)There are better casting reels out there for the surf, but its not terrible. And its nice to know that when a 6' bull shark takes the bait, this is probably the only spinning reel even remotely in this price range that can land him quickly enough for a safe release. I was a diehard conventional reel guy until I tried this spinner out. It has replaced all but my best surf casting and big game conventionals. I have landed many medium (5-7') sharks and several goliath grouper without the reel breaking a sweat. A word of warning if you intend to use the high end of this reels drag range, make sure the rod has a metal reel seat and you have some sort of harness attachment! I luckily had made a lanyard out of coated shark leader and it was wrapped around the base of the reel and hooked into my harness when i got carried away with the drag and ripped the hoods off my rod. If you dont know, 45lbs of drag and a sudden run is enough to pull you overboard and easily snatch your setup out of your hands! My only gripes about this reel are that it is very large and heavy(which can be aided by finding a rod that it balances nicely on) and the tiny protrusion on the drag knob can be difficult to manipulate if you're wearing gloves or you hands are slimy from bait juice. So are there smoother, faster, lighter, and all around better big game spinners out there? Absolutely, but not for under $500 and most pushing $1000+!!!!
ProsHuge line capacity drag that rivals all but the most expensive reels all metal and nicely machined durable coating very attractive finish manual bail
ConsVery large and heavy(the pic is next to a penn 113h!) drag knob can be difficult to grip at times

Paired it up with a terez rod for jigging. Last week landed a 110 lb. bluefin tuna after an hour fight. It worked flawlessly. How do you get a reel for $100 that will do that?

The Lethal 100 is great for surf fishing because it has great drag so you won't get spooled.

Bought this for inshore saltwater. Smooth, seems well built. I’ve only had the chance to use it a couple times, but seems like an excellent product.

solid inshore reel
July 22, 2018
This is a great reel that feels solid in your hand. I matched this reel to a 7ft. medium action rod (6-17lb). I was able to get more then enough 30lb braid on the reel to do what I need it to do.
Overall great reel.

Got the Lethal 80 to pair with the Okuma Nomad 10 ft travel surf rod. Holds tons of line, casts well, and didn't skip a beat with a couple of drops in the surf. Drag is nice too, though I didn't catch anything big enough to really test it yet.
ProsFor 100 bucks? It's great!

Anti-reverse began to fail and then the handle completely shear off the metal screw that holds it on this also occurred while I was striper fishing for small schoolies. Reel was not beat up and only lasted one half of a fishing season.

Five stars for what it is vs price
December 3, 2016
Rating 5 but not the way a Saltist nor Stella would be rated 5. This get it because it offers the best price-to-feature ratio of any reel its size. Used it over last year to tangle with some sharks and cobia. Drags works well, reel looks good and after several trips, looks brand new with nothing more than a good rinse.
ProsPrice. Looks. Construction.
ConsNone apparent yet.

loose click gear
August 5, 2016
Ordered 2 separate Fin Nor lethal 60 to a very legitimate dealers but without luck, both " click gears" were very loose and wobbly.I have the 80&100 models and they're "tight" and without play.Loved Fin Nors' reels and I wish they could fix the quality control on lethal series. My Penn Fierce reels have even a better "click gears.
Prosvery strong drag and lightweight
Consquality inconsistency
