When you got some mechanic talent you can change the plastic bushing (bearing imitation) on the right side of the main schaft to ball bearing (~7$).
Other reel factorys calling this 3+1 bearings 4+1 cuz the instant antibackward system (super stopper II) is +1. With a busing to ball bearing change its 5+1 (+1 is super stopper II).
The backward system is the same like in the expensive shimano reels. You can use it with braided line, the line laying is very good, and the drag is very smooth.
For Light fishing the 2500, for UltraLite fishing the 1000 sizes are the best.
