Anyway, this is my 0.02.
This is a GREAT reel for getting into centerpin. Don't let other negative reviews confuse you.
Yes, islander/raven/kingpin/etc... are better, but you get to pay much more $$.
Let me tell you this, this is the best starter reel. After some experiences, you think you know how to pin, then either buy another reel or upgrade the bearing on aventa.
Spending $30 on high quality ABEC-7 bearing, your aventa will spin just as good as other high-end centerpin reels.
Of course, it's still an aventa... If you r serious about pin, then get some hand made pins.
I know people with many hand made pin reels who still fish this reel, because it's so cheap you don't have to take too much care when using it. The other expensive reels are more like "collection" items.
