Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big gamer! Just got my new reel. Took it out to break it in for sturgeon. After only 30 min I hook and release an oversized beast at 7'. Battled and put my abu 7000c3i to the test. Gonna order another! March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel Used a pair of these mounted on Okuma 12' surf rods in south Florida during the month of January 2014. I stepped off 100 yards one day and cast a 6 oz pyramid sinker. Went 110 yards with 65 lb braid. No backlash! Caught lots of stuff and the reels/poles never let me down. Getting ready to order a third so I can fish with three poles. The combos are short for most pompano fisherman because they want to cast out 100+ yards. Wasn't any trouble for me. February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Quality Reel I've had mine for 2 years now and everything about this reel says quality. Excellent for 10 - 50lb fish, fresh or saltwater. Cast very smoothly, good strong drag, holds plenty of line, and built to last. I've caught everything from large catfish & bass to small sharks with this reel. I have it spooled with 50lb. of braided line and mounted on a Offshore Angler Extreme Jigging rod. It's perfect for Striper fishing. April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel for the money! I recently purchased this at Bass Pro to use surf casting. And I will say compare to my old Penn 200 Surfmaster this will cast a country mile once you get it all dialed in. I regulary fish the Raritan bay from Sandy Hook beach and cast a chunk of bunker with 3-4oz to hold bottom and this reel can handle it. I have landed 25 and 30 lbs fish on this. And when I use this to boat fish I have landed large fish. Took a little longer then normal but it will handle a larger fish if you know how to fight it. I wouldnt take this Tuna fishing, but im sure it could handle a small Tuna! If you want a saltwater reel but dont wanna pay the price for Shimano, GET THIS REEL! It will handler larger fish. I learned about this reel from a gentleman catching 60lbs tarpon in florida and hes landed them no problem. July 20, 2012

China! If this was made in sweden it would be a $500+ Reel. But when checking the real out I noticed it feels the same as any reel made in America or Japan, as the Shimano's!

I currently have mine loaded with 30lbs braid and I have about 550yards on it. I didnt wanna max out the reel as Ive noticed on other conventional baitcasters the fuller the spool the better chance of backlash!

Brake knobs

I noticed there is a knob on the left and right side plates. Are they both brake adjustment knobs? How do they work together?

A: 
I noticed they are for spool tension, however the one of the left side of the reel is more of the centrifugal control. and the handle side if more of a lubrication point.

I was a bit concerned about if reel could cast lighter lures like a bucktail or small twitchbait. I would be using it for musky.

Answers

A: 
Remember the heavier the line he heavier the lure needed to cast it,however, if using a light bait you can compensate by spooling your reel with braid, its casts better then mono with the larger diameter. However with this reel id stick to 1 oz. to 3 oz. as with mono it takes a considerable effort to move the line off the spool.

I want to purchase this reel for muskie fishing, but I thought the gear ratio might be a little slow, espesially for lures like cowgirls, since I'm used to fishing with a 6.4 to 1 gear ratio.

A: 
Think of the lower gear ratio as more of a "winch" design it gives more torque for fighting larger fish. The slower the retrieve the less strain on your line of choice. I know when bass fishing a 6.4:1 - 7.1:1 is the ratio of choice because they are as hefty!

Yes I think it is.
If you want a bit faster like in the five's try the Revo Toro Winch or just the regular Toro 50 series but it would cost more money for the two
