Rated 1 out of 5 by redNeKasain TERRIBLE REEL
So i decided to purchase this reel to replace my bps pro qualifier, there was nothing wrong with my bps reel, i just wanted a smaller reel. I originally wanted to go ahead and buy a smaller pro qualifier but thought to myself, why not get something different? So i did...
Two things about this reel that makes it unusable is
1. the ability for the reel to hold line. I spooled mine with 100yds of 6# test and on my first cast, about 15yds of the line jumped off the spool, i thought maybe it can't hold as much line as its advertised to so took some out, on my next cast the very same thing happend. I even took half the line off the spool and tried casting it and what do you know, the same thing happend.
2. the line twist in this reel is rediculous. Even with the issue above, I've been trying to make it worth the $100 i spent on the reel so ive kept on using it, this reel takes line twist to a whole other level. i get loops and twists in the spool about every 10 casts.
SAVE YOUR $100 AND DON'T GET THIS REEL!

i used this reel for a month, loved it, smooth, long casts looks great, then it started to bind up, bearings went out.i had a fish on the line and the reel was stuck, couldnt reel it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyle Casts Forever!
This reel is absolutely amazing! I bought it yesterday, got home and decided to try some casts. I hooked a soft plastic wacky style, as thats what i was told worked well for bass (I'm not really experienced in what works for what) anyways, this reels in nice too! This is a great reel, if your willing to spend the money, which, when you think about it is an amazing one for this product. Pick one up and enjoy it today! Good job again Abu Garcia. For Life

Rated 3 out of 5 ok for the money
Its a good reel for the money it will handle braid and mono fine but there is a lot of memory with fluro. I used seagar invisex 8 lb and there was a lot of line twist that I did not get with my old quantum energy. Drag is really smooth and will throw a mile but will twist line. Bummer.
