These are junk, spend little a more money and get quality. These locked up after one season.

Had these teaser reels for 1.5 summers and they have seized up and will not lock in place. Even with washing with freshwater after every trip. Poor quality. Do not recommend wasting your money on these.

Teaser reel

I ordered 2 of these, 1 was good to go, the other was missing the handle bolt and allen wrenchs. I called Tackle Direct's customer service and they had another reel in stock, he opened the box to make sure it had everything in it ( which it did) and shipped it rite out. The reels are good for the money, just make sure you check to see if all the parts are there before you are ready to install. TD's customer service is GREAT!!!!!

I ordered two of these reels and one was missing several parts. I sent one reel back and ordered another. Tackle Direct gave me 100% cedit on reel and freight. The second reel I received was also missing a part, the main shaft bushing. The bushing was the # 22 part on there parts break down schematic. I called Tackle Direct for the part. They said they have no parts and would have to call the distributor. It has been well over a week and no word. I called the distributor and was told that the person I needed to speak to was not in and he would be left a message to call me. No response as of yet. I ended up making my own bushing so I could use the reel, works fine now.
ProsRed works fine if it comes with all it's parts.
ConsPoor customer support from Tackle Direct and Maxel.
