I cant believe people are praising this product. I have 1 and my buddy has 1 as well. We have had issues with both. Maybe its because we used them too much idk. Bought the product in early Spring 2013 and the worm gear has needed to be replaced 3xs in 1, and twice in the other. I used powerpro on 1 so I thought maybe braid was the issue. Not true, mono, same issue. They do cast good once they are adjusted, but this reel clearly sucks. Don't buy it. Much better luck with the Extreme or other models.

The Bionic Plus with the Bionic Micro rod worked great for me on a week of fishing on Toledo Bend this fall. Was cold and windy and not one backlash in 6 days of fishing. Not bad for a week- end fisherman. I have several more expensive combos but they don't compare to the Bionic rod and reel. Will be adding more of these to my deck.

I may have gotten a lemon but the pins on the inside of this reel change on there own. I have been constantly turning them off. After every 5 or 6 casts the brakes are all back on choking off the cast and killing the distance. Then there are the times I turn the brakes on and before I know it (right before turning the spool into tangled mess) 3 of them are off. It is an ok reel if you keep it dialed in but you have to constantly take the side plate off and mess with it.

I bought the Enigma reel when it came out because I wanted to get into using baitcasters. As far as I can tell, this is an improved model of that since they don't make it anymore. The Bionic is certainly an improvement when it comes to casting, you can whip it and it wont backlash. Most people don't realize it has two sets of drag, pins inside and dial on the outside; dial those in and your set. Its smooth, casts a mile, and more comfortable than its predecessor.
