I bought the reel not expecting much because of some of the negative reviews. I started by casting a heavier lure. Then i worked my way down to a weightless fluke. casted just fine. drag system worked smoothly on a 19 inch smallmouth. The price is great.
I don't see anything negative about this reel.

This is my third bait caster and let me tell you, i am in love with this product. Paired it with a cherrywood Berkeley 7' pole and it has performed amazingly.
I am going out this weekend to pickup 3 more!

For the money great real

This reel is getting used for large Steelhead trout ranging from 2-10+ lbs. I have used it for 3 years and caught some hogs the drag and feel are just fine. I have not lost a single fish to drag issues as stated by another rater, in fact I find the drag to be very adjustable and repeatable. I bought this reel after spending most of my money on a St. Croix rod, I bought this reel thinking if it can get me through the first year I would be happy and buy a different one. I have enjoyed it enough after three years I am planning to continue to use it for the foreseeable future. When it was purchased I was worried about drag, smooth feel, ability to handle big fish and how far it would cast. I am not wondering anymore and am happy with all but the feel. While it is ok I give this a 4 star rating because of feel ONLY! Functionality is awesome, the feel on the retrieval is not the smoothest. BUT for the price a GREAT value.

Salmon to trout

Reel works great. Have caught fish as big as an 18 lb king salmon down to a little 12" rainbow. Drag worked great fighting two big salmon on the river where I could not go down stream to bring them in. Fought the 18lber fro 45 minutes with no problems at all.
