Rated 3 out of 5 by Brandon15180 Great starting reel
To my opinion this is an all around good reel for the money! Really impressed in the max drag and also the recovery:) it has a nice accessory to it, it has a flipping switch wich might make it easyer to be pitching. It does have its ups and downs because of off you don't set the reel to each lure you might get a lot of backlashes
All in all it's great to start and learn with this reel because of how you can use it.

Pros: Price! High drag setting! A child can operate it once it's set. This reel was difficult to get dialed in perfect but once it's dialed in, it casts almost as good as any expensive reel. This reel has two brakes, spool tension and a magnetic brake.
Cons: Not reading the instructions/manual shall cause a backlash/overrun every time (smile).

When I first held this reel and casted it I said "this thing is really good" then I looked at the price tag and said "this thing is great." if you get backlash with this real then stick to spinning because you aren't quite ready yet. landed plenty of fish from baby's to five and six pounders and never heard a grind or buzz. Only reason I didn't give it five stars was the lack of longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BenPeetermans Good buy
I actually bought this reel on a combo at a yard sale for $30, it was my first baitcaster. I always loved the idea of using one, since that's what all the pro's seem to use.
After using it a few times, I kept getting horrible backlashes and eventually I just gave up.
Now, about a year later, I decided to pick me up a nice Pflueger baitcaster rod, 10lb fluorocarbon line and give it another shot, and I'm hooked on this reel now.
I just wish it was a left hand retrieve, instead of right, but hey.
If you got horrible backclashes, make sure you are using a good baitcaster pole and line, still got problems? Use heavier lures.
