Built like a truck!

This reel is sturdy, reliable, smooth, which gives me confidence. When I go out fishing for rockfish here in Monterey, I take several rods and reels, rigged differently. This reel is my go to, and has never failed. I highly recommend it.
Pros
  • Built strongly, the drags work without fail, reeling up is steady and reliable. It handles a variety of lines and is usable for fishing for lings, rigging for yellow tail and even albacore. The price was reasonable and I'm grateful to have it in my tool box.
Cons
  • It's a large reel so if you're wanting to go small and light, it's not the one.

Great affordable reel

I use these reels for bottom fishing in NC. Spooled with 80# braid fishing heavy 16oz bank sinkers with live bait for grouper. I purchased toriums at the advice of my local tackle shop and these reels way outperformed the Toriums and cost much less. Even landed a 250+ lb tiger shark on one trip. Very impressive for what the reel is and cost. You won’t be disappointed.
Pros
  • Cost
  • Weight
  • Durability
Cons
  • Not as pretty as an Avet.

Good reel but the clicker is worthless
May 23, 2016
Good reel overall except for the clicker that failed after third time out. If your fishing without needing to set the clicker it is a smooth and comfortable to use.

Very nice reel

I bought one to try them out and immediately ordered a second one! I mainly fish from the piers for sharks and such and they are great casting reels along with a loud clicker and a great drag. I also fish them on the party boats out of Galveston for snapper and tuna.

We fished these heavy since I got them. Landed wahoo, kingfish, sailfish and sharks on charter fishing. They performed well, nice drag, and we spooled them with straight 30 pound mono, good capacity, nice drag and very smooth reel, customers liked them, they also have a good clicker system.
Pros
  • Smooth, good drag, tough.
