At least new to me. Good reel for the money. Holds more line than I had hoped. Plenty if you use braid. I've been throwing a level wind my whole life so, no big deal. Don't buy this reel to learn on.

I bought this reel on spring break. The next day i used it. It has casted better then any other reel i have ever used or seen somebody use. It is smooth and easy to adjust. I really like it and for the price, its well worth it.

Good bang for your buck
This is one of the best casting reels I own , the only one I own that is better , is my Abu Garcia Pro Max. Lite soft plastics are not as much of a problem , even casting into the wind . It's like any other reel , you have to get it dialed in & not overthrow it , after that it is smooth as silk . I'm not sure about longevity yet ( with only 5+1 bearings), but for now it's one of my favorites .

This Is a General Answer to Most Bait-casters. Tie the Lure You want to Flip or Pitch On. with the Reel on the rod at a 45 degree angel to the ground Keeping your thumb on the spool some. from thigh-en to more free spooling slowly turn the knob Till the Lure falls to the ground . when it Hits the Ground there should be no Overrun or Backlash at all with the side Plate sent to Zero.. Then if you Have wind to Deal with turn up the side Plate to cure Backlash or over runs.. You Must set the Main Knob to the weight of the Lure Your using. This is a start Setting . in time you may be able to go free up the main Knob more and be able to feather the spool with Your thumb
There's not much to it really. You just have to set the brake a little lighter.

Like any other baitcaster, you set the tension knob so the lure maintains a controlled fall during free-spool and then sat the brakes so that when the lure hits the water, you spool is not spinning too fast
I usually set mine for the weight of the lure and turn the flipping switch off. But that is just the way I do it. And the wasy I do it works pretty good until I get a backlash, one of which I have spent an hour and a half trying to fix.
I am not sure that this is the best beginners reel. I have three low-profile baitcasters. But it is cheap enough to be a good beginner reel. So I am not sure that is or is not. I do think that an anti-backlash reel like the shakespeare one would be better for this prurpose.
this reel is a great reel for any starter or even if you are just looking for a great value. i have a silver max that i have with me 7 foot fenwick rod that i have had for 2 seasons now and dont plan on replacing it any tiome soon. this is my fith baitcasting reel i have owned in my life and by far my favorite.
