I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because it is line and casts great but they market it as a surf reel and I dont think it would handle sand as well as say the new Spheros.

But! I wish I had a chance to get better acquainted with the new sensitive drag. Today I hooked a Tarpon about a hundred yards out. Even in Florida hooking a Tarpon in the surf is a real experience that , believe me, doesn't happen every day. The fish took off like a rocket pulling line off at an unbelievable rate. I decided to tighten up the drag forgetting in the moment that the drag goes from basically nothing to full lock down in about half a turn or so. I went from about 20% drag to 100% in a half second and of course the line snapped.
It's a great reel (despite my profanity at the time). I recommend it, but the drag takes a whole lotta getting used to. Some things are better off left alone.
- Good high quality reel that does what it says it will.
- Do I really have to answer this. Be careful with the drag!
- best surf reel your money can buy the 3 spools are a big plus and the drag is smooth and powerful
- shimano please lose the anti reverse they are a thing of the past HAHAHAHA
- Bulky looking
