I had one of these reels when I was a young man, and it worked great. Back then I purchased the reel because it was low cost and I had little extra money, now I have the money to purchase any reel and I went with my old friend, the Jigmaster.

Simply one of the best reels a person can buy for the price! A wonderful "one size fits all" saltwater fishing tool, as effective for cod, blackfish, snapper, and grouper as it is for stripers and bluefish. A "quick swap" feature allows a person to change their spool of line easily to meet the changing conditions which sometimes occur while out on the water. An added advantage is that the reel can be serviced at most tackle shops with no problem unlike more "exotic" equipment, though quite honestly, usually a little WD-40 and gear oil will keep it running fine for years before it needs a major overhaul.
