Affordable Fin Nor
Great reel. Holds plenty of line. Performed nicely. Drag was smooth. Gonna make it my go-to reel for casting to strippers and blues. Can’t wait to hook a monster to see how it performs on larger fish. Handled 10 to 15 pounders pretty flawlessly

Great product
Bought as a back up. First day out I had to use it as my Penn broke. Performed flawlessly. For the price (a 1/3 of my Penns), I will have to think hard about buying another Penn over these reels. I was rock fishing.
ProsSeems well made.....well balanced on a 6.5 rod.
ConsThe bail could be smoother, but OK as is.

Quality seems hit or miss.
I ordered two of these. One was buttery smooth and is still working beautifully after months of regular use. The other had a clunking sound when reeling right out of the box, which developed into a loud squeak/screeching sound and binding up after only one outing making it basically unusable.

Value based quality
I seldom use spinning gear and got these primarily for friends and family so they wouldn't ruin my casting gear while they borrowed my stuff to fish. But, these reels have a nice drag and pulling power for yts and tuna. No issues killing some tasty critters in a very economical, yet high quality, reel.

fin-nor mls60 cp
I loaded the reel with 60 lb suffix momo line. The reason for such heavy test line of this spinner is due to the use. I use it on salt water reefs in the gulf of mexico. You have to keep the line on the bottom and it comes in contact with abrasive rocks and coral. This cause ware on line which will break if you use like a 20 or 30 lb. test. With using the 60lb it has a tendancey to unravel off the spool if you want to cast it away from boat. The un-raveling cause line to grab reel or hang up or trip retriever which cause a miss cast. You have to take extra caught when you have to cast reel. the reel itself has functioned pretty good on retrieving of the snapper, porgies, grunts, and sea bass. I have caught some undersize grouper but no legal size grouper has been reeled up. I do believe it will handle a keeper size grouper. I have not tested it fully yet. I plan on trying to land an American Red Snapper with it. If it handles an American Red snapper successfully, it will stand up to my test expectation. I have it matched up with an Ugly stick rod.
ProsLite and comfortable, smooth reeling
Consdoes not handle 60lb test or heavier very well. it unravels off spool when you fillip bail to cast.

Worth the price
Ok, first- I bough mine while they were having a 2for1 sale. It was a no brainer. My boat buddy has 3 and we’ve reeled in everything from 15# Snapper to 20# Kings (line peelers). We had a helluva time with a 33# Ling, but we did land it. Probably lost a little life on the drag on that one, but we just got tired of playing the fish and cranked on the drag to get it close enough for the gaff. So, when I saw these on sale, I naturally bought two. I rigged one and am keeping the other as a spare, in case one of my Penn Spinfishers goes down during the season.

Great Snapper Reel!
Got the 2 for 1 deal from Tackle Direct and matched them on some medium action Ugly Sticks I found on clearance. I got two great setups for less than the price I would normally get one reel! Reel is perfect for the job, dropping down for snapper in S.W. Florida. I've had Fin-Nor in the past and had great luck with durability hopefully these will hold up the same.

Well built budget reels (2 for 1 deal)
I was first introduced to Fin-Nor reels on a charter out of Clearwater, FL. My first reaction was wow these are pretty light and smooth. I typically fish Shimano stradics and was impressed at the performance of Fin-Nor reels. When I saw the 2 for 1 deal with tackle direct I jumped on it. 2 quality reels for $60 almost didn’t make sense. 23lbs of drag for $30 per reel!?! You know what to do. Jump on this deal the reel is smooth and solid.
ProsLight, built well, price.
ConsWould have preferred a round or oval handle but not a deal breaker.

Was skeptical at first but went with the bogo deal. What do I have to lose, right? Well out of the package was a nicely built reel. No slop or loose parts. I spooled with 50lb power pro. Rod is a 10€™ MHF surf rod. Let me tell you, reel feels smooth and cast smooth. The drag is great. I€™m almost tempted to order another reel while the bogo deal is still active. Just means I€™ll have to buy more rods.

Best reel you can find, look no further!!!
I was watching this reel for a bit and finally decided to get them since my reels that I truly appreciate and still working good (PENN Pursuit II 5000) are going into their fifth year of abuse and catching well over 100€™s of bull reds and other fish species like red snapper, sharks, jacks, triple tail, stingray, tarpon, barracudas and more. This reels are a bit of step up of my penns without spending a lot of money and on top of that TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!!! That€™s a sale to not pass up!!!

This is the best reel on the market. Expensive reels are dandy, but this reel is better. Its light, inexpensive, and performs like a top shelf reel. At first, you may think its cheapo... but this reel can take abuse. I surf cast with it and mine has been submerged many times. Covered in wet, salty beach sand. I like how its inexpensive so if i lose it or break it, im not feeling bad. This reel has the "it paid for itself" vibe. Mines not showing any signs of failure. By far the best reel ive used. I have a $300 fancy reel that siezed up within a month. I also have a 30 year old 8000 size reel thats still working (somewhat). If you cant a good saltwater reel than can take abuse and get the job don, megalite is it. Robust and lightweight, this reel (size 60) is a great match on a 9' surf rod. My setup has brought in many fish. If you buy any other reel instead, make sure its a Fin-Nor Lethal.

Simple and effective
Have to say theres been 2 posted reviews here for 3 months, gotta be more people buying this product than this, BECAUSE IT'S PRETTY AWESOME ! I'm not a saltwater drone that swears by anything Penn makes.Stay away from cheap Penn's. This Fin nor has a sweet drag, it's very smooth, the bail flips crisp. This model has 5 bearings, less is more and less hassles with breakdowns and seizing up. I have literally over 30 reels in my house, Daiwa is my main spinners but when they break I throw them out, usually bearings. I'm impressed w the Lethal's, not at all by regular Quantum products but they do share common part numbers/bearings. With Penn reels you can buy parts online easily, well Fin nor is just as easy and easy to work on, unlike Daiwa and Shimano. Price is right, it's a tight package, you will like.
ProsParts can be found on line, simple design.
Cons I would like an aluminum frame but don't want to pay. No complaints yet.

Awesome Reel
I bought this Fin Nor reel because I was looking for something light and easy to cast all day without getting tired. I used this reel and it's smooth as silk, cast after cast. I fished it at a local lagoon and caught a 24 inch Barracuda with no hassle at all, I want to test it out on some bigger fish and see how it handles.I would highly recommend this reel to anyone who likes to cast cranks, spoons, swimbaits, and spinnerbaits.
Proslightweight, smooth cast and retrieve. Great Price
