The reel is very good and due to the large dia spool it has a fast retrieve that minimises line spin. Casting is very easy with the reel and I had no problems casting to the far side of the Trent.

I have the Mitchel Big Mouth 5000 and the Shakespeare Mach 3 035's and 040's.

They are both very good reels, however I'd opt for the Shakespeare due to the price and the 4 spools supplied with the reel.

If you intend using the reel primarily for spinning and feeder work go for the 040 size as the 035 is best used with lines below 6lbs.

If you are going to use the reel mainly for float and light feeder work look at the 035

I can't fault the Mitchel as it is a very good reel with bags of winding power and a very good drag so see if you can see them side by side. I use mine for long ultra range feeder fishing and can't fault it.
