good reel for the money, cast very far with the right set up of rod and braided line, strong enough to handle big stripers and hybrids in strong current, i plan to get one more of this reel in the future
Consi make sure that the roller on the bail catches the line when im retrieving, if it doesnt the line would be loose on the spool and this would create bird nest when cast again

I have the smallest reel of this particular brand and use it for ultralight fishing on the Chesapeake. Great retrieve, can cast a mile and have had no issues with birds nest or line tangling. No hint of corrosion anywhere.
