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.

by JBeach 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

Drag will not stay tight, spool release only works part of the time, line will get caught between the spool and the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kash 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.
