As you can tell by my title love the rod and reel set up went fishing (can't say where) but for walleyes ended up hooking into a 56 inch 72 pound lake sturgeon had 30lb power pro line. Put up a fight for about a solid hour but my friends helped me beach him. glad to have a once in a lifetime opportunity with Abu Garcia products! TWO THUMBS UP!

Love this little guy

Love this little reel. I have the stx5. Great reel for ultra light fishing. I spool 2lb line and fish a small river with it. Drag is awesome and I catch a lot of 3-5lb suckers while fishing for trout. The drag just zipps and is so smooth I never pop the line(2lb) with a pause in the drag. Buy one you'll like it. I love it!

Good reel

This reel worked well on a float rod for steelhead trout - landed several 5lb plus - the drag system is very smooth - these fish do test equipment. Did notice that under normal load of the float and bait ie roe bag the reel seems to make a russel type sound when you retrieve the bait for your next cast - it reels smooth - this is the only question for Abu Garcia I have and would like to know if there is something that needs oil or grease. I also have the SX model - it dose the same thing.
Overall I like these reels and intend to use them for years to come.

broke after one week

Purchased this reel after years of using nothing but shimano reels thinking this looked like a great reel at a good price. Maybe I got a bad one I don't know? Handle completely locked up and will not turn and I've only used it 3 times. Now I'm out 50 bucks because I don't have a receipt. Bought the 30 size.
