Excellent reel. I have 3 of these at the moment will probably purchase more. Top of the line one of the smoothest reels I've ever owned.Mattcoots
I love these reels!!! They cast like a dream wether I am throwing a weightless senko or a big football jig. I have started to change out all of my Shimanos for these wonderful reels.Leondias (Lee) Butcher
I own 5 of these and after fishing these reels all season I can say I am extremely impressed. Very lightweight and very smooth. They will cast any baits and any weights with ease. I use mine for flipping, cranking, jerbaits, blade baits, and chatterbaits and it performed better than I ever expected with all these baits. No issues out of any of them either after a full tournament season.Rosselbt956
