Comments: one of the best big swimbait and big fish reels you can buy. you wont be dissapointed
From: Justin: Brea, CA
Comments: Terrific for swimbait: both freshwater and salt! No problems with rust, and it casts very smoothly with heavy line. I've had mine for over a year, and fish it everywhere from San Diego inshore fishing, to bass tournament series in Central Texas. Sic 'em Bears!
