Rated 4 out of 5 by NolaSportsman Nice Reel Recently purchased this reel manily for perch and crappie fishing. Used it once and it performed well. It casts good and is faily smooth. I do like the star drag control as it is better than the cheap thump spool that most reels come with. It appears to be made well and hope to get a few years of use out of it before having to replace. The one draw back is when casting, the mono that the reel came with did snag a few times. I plan on replacing with new Trilene before the next fishing trip. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by WildBill36 *Extremely* Good Reel I am blown away by this reel. For $30 you cannot beat it. The reel retrieves at 27" per full turn which is almost unheard of in most spincast reels. Its smooth as silk. It has a great line capacity. It cast like a sniper rifle. Plus, the designers of this reel were really thinkin' about folks when they put in a lube port on the side of the reel, so you don't have to pull the thing apart to lubricate the gears. I just bought this reel a couple weeks ago, and I've already landed a couple of nice bass and even one 15" long rainbow trout with my Extreme Spincast, it seems to be holding up very well, and looks like a reel I'll get many years of good use out of. If you're lookin' for an alternative to Zebco you needn't look any farther than this reel right here. May 18, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basstream Awesome Rate of Retrieve and Casting distance! I am wholly impressed with this reel. It offers excellent casting accuracy without having to use a baitcaster. I almost bought the top of the line Zebco close bail reel, but opted to try this one for 1/2 the price and am very pleased! The 27" rate of retrieve puts it up there with many of the top of the line baitcasters! Don't listen to what the other reviewer said about the placement of the button - it's actually an excellent placement and design! The drag works great as well. BPS hit the nail on the head with this product. This will be a great "quick" setup. I put 17# 100% fluorocarbon on and the reel performs flawlessly. I am going to pair this with a 6'6" med/hvy rod and should be a great no nonsense set up. April 6, 2013
