Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too much gap Using 6 lbs high vis crappie line. If you let any slack in the line (like when you are letting the bait sink) the line slips between the reel frame and the reel spool. Then if you want to fish deeper you have to take the reel apart to fix it. I returned mine for a cheaper model. February 28, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by great item These reels are great for trolling and jigging, we caught a 4lb crappie on them the second week we had them. The only down side is you need to keep checking the star drag. After winding in a few fish, I notice some of them will become loose, which will cause a bad backlash. The other thing is don' t fill the line all the way to the top, it will go under the spool, then you have to take the whole reel apart. Tight line, spidder rigging is the only way to go with these reels. I own 10 of them, and they get used about twice a week. We caught a 8lbs. catfish on them to, they can handle a big fish with 6lb crappie maxx line. Do not try and cast these reels they are not for that at all. FYI April 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by horrible drag Drag will not stay tight, spool release only works part of the time, line will get caught between the spool and the frame. April 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crappie Maxx Reel I've been using these reels for a number of years. They are far superior to the other reels I've used, which were pretty much nothing more than line holders. TheCrappie Maxx is a real reel with all the right features. May 16, 2012

You use anti reverse to set your depth. Then lock it back in place. From there, jig away my friend!

The reel is a very classy metallic moss green color. As far as I know that is the only color this reel is produced in.

A: 
Yes it is green . The old wally marshall models are a little darker green but these newer ones are near the same green ( light emerald metallic green ) . Nice reels . I use large mono line ( 20# biggame solar by berkly ) and tie a flourocarbon leader to it so I can see the bite better and keep line from getting behind the side of the spool . A problem these reels have with any line 12# or under . Anyway I would put the large diameter line with a leader on it anyway even if it wasn't a problem . Good luck and tight lines to you and yours .
