Don''t Do It!

I purchased the S5-C to pair with a 5' ultra-light Shimano Voltaeus spinning rod. First, the reel seems much smaller than it should be, which belies the weight of the reel: More on parr with a micro-light reel. In addition, it seems cheaply made, with plastic handle seat and plastic handle nut. Every second rotation on retrieve, it gets noticably tighter and some friction is evident. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is the price, but, if I could do it over, I'd not buy this reel. Bottom line: Spend another $10.00 and get the Pflueger GX7 or Mitchell Avocet lV. Seriously! Don't buy this reel, it's more of a toy than an angler's tool.

this reel has been one of my best. A lot of people would say that for the price to not get it. They are wrong. This is a great reel if it were priced 150$ the gears are so smooth. I rig it up with a Abu Garcia Vendetta 6-6 medium action rod. Abu Garca has never disappointed me and this is not an acception.
Get this reel!

Good Real for the Money

I really like this reel. It is smooth, relatively light, and it looks cool. I have been able to fish this reel over 5 times (day long trips) and I can say that I am impressed. For $30 you can't go wrong. The smooth drag aloud me to land a 5 pound 2 oz largemouth with ease. I've always used more expensive Abu Garcia reels but this small cheap reel has proven fit for me. I love using it on my 6'6'' Veritas for shaky head and wacky rig fishing. Overall a great reel for the price. I would highly recommend this to anyone from the novice angler to the professional.
