It's a good reel for the money under certain conditions. I bought 4 one time. If your gonna be trolling I would say it would be the worst situation for it. Not good drag and can't put extreme pressure on it. I've used them anchored up or on the bank they will do just fine. I know a couple guys that have brought in 100s of 50 plus pound cats including 2 over 85 lbs few weeks ago and a 94 a while back.

I have 2 Tidewaters & they work amazing & I can cast them a mile. Great reels for the price. I keep both of mines spooled with 30# yellow Hi Seas mono I got from Dave at Bottom Dwellers & have not had one hiccup out of those reels.
