I put it on a 10.5 ' medium action rod for surf fishing in Monterey Bay , CA. and it casts a mile. The reel is very smooth. I would suggest using backing on both the spools as it holds an incredible amount of 30 lb. braid.
The drag is very smooth and adjustable.
A couple of things that is troublesome is the bail does not lock open sometimes making it necessary to rotate the spool for it to lock in a casting position . Also the bail is hard to close by cranking the handle making it easier to manually close the bail.
Overall ,weighing the good points over the bad, for the money, it's a good reel. :)
