This is a great reel by Penn. I use it primarily for catfish and it does a great job. It casts a mile, much to my surprise. Smooth handling as well.

If you want a baitcasting reel that works great for almost any species, this is the reel you want!

I feel bad because I recommended buying this reel to a beginner. I took him out stripper fishing for the first time on my boat. We where dropping eels off a tri swivel and 12 oz weight. 10 min in and the plastic gears busted on the left side. This caused it to jam and we cut the line, his day was done. He also lost his receipt and couldn't return it. A week later i invited him to go fishing again and use my rods, he decided to buy the same reel and showed up at my boat. I was surprised he decided to do that. Same thing happened, the plastic gears broke in 10 min causing it to jam. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
If you like PENN, the Senator is a far better product for roughly the same price.
