Comments: Great durable reels Ive got three for crappie, bass, trout, and smallmouth. Work great but I've had a problem with one of the handles and it fell off but other than that they are a must for light spinning

From: Will: Nashville, TN 12/8/14

Comments: Awesome reel that i bought last year for bluegill/trout fishing. paired it with 4lb test and it casts a mile. have caught many 12 inch bluegill and 20 inch trout. i also hooked up with a 4lb bass and landed it with no problems on 4lb test. smooth drag no problems so far and a very good real for the price. im going to buy the bigger model soon and pair it up with the berkley lightning shock rod. very pleased with this reel.

Comments: awesome reel for the money. Caught plenty of 5+ lbs largemouth on it. It casts as long as my friends baitcasters. I'm using 10lbs braid and its great.

From: Jesse: Atascadero, CA

Comments: nice little reel. been using it mainly for saltwater purposes or letting my buddy who doesnt know how to fish use it. ive personally caught with this reel a 3 lb spotted bay bass and a 6lb corvina here in san diego bay. nice smooth drag, it handles hard fighting saltwater fish well, and it can handle a beating of novice fisherman and saltwater. ive been using it for over 6 months amd havent had to lube or oil it once. quality stuff for the price.
