Really like this reel for applications that require working the bait, because of it's compact size. It's my go to rip bait reel and I like it for light line applications as well. Casts light lures nicely too.

What can I say about this reel? It handles 1/8 jigs with ease and resists backlash as good as the Tatula SV. Try it out!

It's one of the best reels I've ever bought. It's fast, with a good brake record and I can do the casting very far

Hello I had a question, which reel is better overall, this one or the Shimano Chronarch Ci4 plus ? And can either of those reels be used for Saltwater ? Thanks
1 Answers
The CI4+ is a better all around reel casting, retrieve and durablity. The Chronarch can be used in saltwater.
