Abu Garcia Cardinal S Spinning Reel
All of my reels are Abu Garcia reels. I bought this one to keep as a cheap heavier action reel and to be quite honest it feels as smooth and "clean" as my $100+ Abu reels. Definitely recommend!

Didn't hold up
I bought this reel in June '13. Worked very well for the first 4 fishing trips. On the 5th trip, the plastic piece at the end of the handle came off on a hook set. Could not repair because the small metal rod that holds it in place would never stay in again. Returned it to store and got credit for it.
Hopefully it's an isolated incident. I own other Abu reels and love them.

I used this reel for a total of 5 hours and it cracked. I don't even see how that is possible. Not only did it just crack, it snapped my line because the cheap plastic shreds ripped my line. So not only was I out 30 dollars for a cheaply made reel, I lost my crankbait as well. Awful. Would never buy again.
