very poor This reel is a real piece of GARBAGE! i plan on returning mine asap July 8, 2011
Great crappie reel I have four of these reels. They are great for tight lining off a pier or from a boat. I have found that the line will not get tangled in the gap between the spool and the housing if the spool is not overfilled with line. I use them on my Wally Marshall (now Crappie Maxx) crappie rods. I have 8 ft, 9 ft, 10 ft and 12 ft lengths. The reels perform great on all. I have used them for about 4 years. June 10, 2011
The same reel as the old one it replaces I have 6 of the old Wally Marshall reels and two of these new reels and they are identicle . These reels are designed for light jig trolling techniques and still/slow troll/drift verticle drop techniques Not anything else . They are not for casting at all . They perform excellant at all of these except for a glaring defect that light line will often get caught inside the reel through the gap around the spool . I overcome this problem by using 20# test hi-vis. mono with a 6# flourocarbon leader tied on with uni to uni knot . This also helps me see the light bites so much easier . A real help to my tired old eyes . I'm not bragging but I often outfish most others on the slow days and I accredit this to the large diameter line makiing the lightest of bites easy to detect. You will not want to adjust the drag to lightly because it won't hold and it will slip to freespool . So play with each reel a little to gauge its charactoristics because each is a little different. For the reasons of having to make the adjustments over the defects in these reels they only get 3 stars but I totally enjoy them after making these few adjustments . Hope this helps curb your learning curve a little . Good luck on those slabs. January 31, 2011

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.

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 .
