I bought my new rod reel combo today. I took it straight to my local lake and had alot of trouble getting a good cast. I spent more time cleaning up my line then I did fishing. I was either casting 5 feet away or untying knots from backlash. I really love the gear ratio but if I can't get this working the way it was advertised then I'm going back to an opened faced reel. Why is it so hard to include a manual? It'd be nice to have the info right out of the gate instead of having a bad expierence and then coming here to complain about it. If anything post a demo video for the novice bait cast reel buyer/user!!!!!!!!!! Also I'd like you to send me a brand new, top of the line rod and reel combo since I am ruined now on baitcast reels without manuals.

It is a very nice reel overall and very good for beginners. The only problem is that the traction on the grip of the handles is not very good, I bought reel grip™ and that really worked for me. Another problem was that it was very prone to backlash, even if you are very good at casting, it will still backlash and pretty often. Not very bad though, just a little bush that can be easily cleared. This only happens when you chuck a heavy bait, 3/4-1 oz baits. Overall a good reel and even better for the money. Not to mention it looks hot!

After not using a baitcaster for over 15 years I decided I wanted to buy one once again. Due to the price, a coupon, and other reviews I figured spending $40 wouldn't be bad to tryout a baitcaster once again. After adjusting this thing it casted like a dream. It was so smooth and I quickly built up that confidence and was slinging line outta this thing like crazy. Now that I am getting back into bass fishing I will be buying another one and pairing it with the 8' Vertias rod for flipping especially since it has the flipping feature on it. Buy this thing if it is your first or you are a baitcasting pro it is well worth the price and then some.
