I have several of the Apex Elite reels. Have been very happy with them for everything from bass fishing to catfishing. They have held up great over the past 5 plus years of hard work I have put them through.Duane Mathis
One of the best reels I have ever used. Smooth, light and casts a mile. No BS!Joe Loreti
