I bought this as a combo with the tourney trail as my first baitcaster.
It is a great baitcaster to learn with has handle some 5-10 cats and hybrid bass no problem.

Great 1st bait caster!

After using spinning reels for most of my fishing, I decided to try out a bait caster. It was intimidating with all the brands out there and high price range for a decent bait caster.
I was surprised from reading all the good reviews on this bait caster and it being under $100. I had to give it a shot. And I'm glad I did!
I ordered the LH retrieve because I naturally like to hold rod (big bass/striper) with my right and crank with left.
It was super easy to dial in! I have it spooled up with 100% fluorocarbon 12lbs Seagaur invizX. No backing of mono was needed because it has a wiffle spool.
Once dialed in (about 10 minutes of pitching and dialing magnetic drive) I was casting away and fishing!

great reel for the price

i have 2 of these reels on my abu garcia veritas setups. i have been using both reels pretty hard for 2 seasons now. both reels have hauled in pleanty of bass for me without any major issues. the only problem i have is the flippin switch when on it doesn't always work the way its designed. the thumb release will stay down and not lift back up to the locked position. i have this reel on a 7'6" veritas flippin stick with 30# power pole braid. i have pulled a good amount of bass out of the pads over the last 2 years.
the reel is still working for me.

Bought this reel for my baby brother because he got good grades. It's pretty good for the price but I would recommend buying in store because the quality control is very bad on these cheaper line of reels. I had to look through a few to find one that I could loosen the drag all the way, some only seemed to loosen the drag 3/4 of the way. The drag on this reel is very strong. Got it home and paired it with a bps rod that I also got him. Tied on a scum frog and within 15 min, I had the reel dialed in and casting 40+ yds. Pretty sure it can cast further with a jig. This reel was kinda hard to get dialed in perfect but once it's dialed in, it casts almost as good as my more expensive reels. This reel has two brakes, spool tension and a magnetic brake. For the price I paid, I'd be happy if it lasts at least 2 seasons for him. If you're new to baitcasting, this would be a good reel to try out.

This is a great smooth reel. I can cast it 45+ yards with a swimbait and you don't get the screeching noise like you do with some other reels at this price.
Overall its a great buy especially if your on a budget.
