I bought two of these reels for a trip to Minnesota with my grandson. After one day of fishing the line that came with the reel was frayed and the nylon was powdered all over the inside. I cleaned the reel and replaced the line for the next day with 8 lb. test mono. After a few hours the reel started to make a grinding sound and casting was near imposable beyond 30 feet without snagging in the cap. My grandson started to have the exact same problems I had on the third day of fishing. I ended up using one of my Abu Garcia bait casters while trolling for the rest of the week. I have two Abu Garcia rods and bait cast reels and never had any problems what so ever and I love them, but this reel was a total let down, I will not trust this reel for any fishing trip except as a last resort back-up reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by truck1029 Very low quality
I bought this reel and thought it was great...for the first day. The second day I used it, it started to make this horrible grinding sound when I was reeling in a fish. I don't know what caused this, but I am very disappointed in the reel quality. I was told it was a good brand, but apparently not. I had a $15 reel last longer than it did. I would not recommend this reel to anyone, unless you only wanted to use it for one day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Walt2012 It's decent but not great
Purchased the 476i based on past experiences with Abu Garcia products and the success I had with them as far as durability and performance. The information I read online and some reviews of 476i, sold me and I bought it. Overall, it's a decent reel and gets the job done. On the down side, it's bulkier than I preferred and getting the drag adjusted to where I like it was not easy.
I would not recommend this reel for anything smaller than large bass, catfish or larger freshwater fish. It is definitely too big for pan fish.

For the last 4 years, I've bought my wife one of Garcia's reels including this one. Doesn't matter which one or how expensive, Each was good for one year only.I found a shop to rebuild them, but the cost was as much as the reels. Last year, I bought her a Zebco Omega. Still going strong as new, & she uses it almost daily. What happened to the Garcis quality?
