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
Rated 1 out of 5 by C5Josh Had high hopes Having limited use of my hands, I primarily use spincast setups when fishing. Having used every other major brand of spincast, I was excited to see the far superior specifications of this reel. It sounds like a great deal for this piece of equipment, especially at the price. However, it has some major room for improvement. My biggest complaint is the button. It is small and located in a funny position, much lower than other spincasts and at a odd angle, making it uncomfortable use. Comparing it with other reels that I have, the button also requires a much larger amount of pressure when casting. My 13-year-old nephew had a hard time keeping the button compressed. The ceramic line guide has come loose after the second day of use. I noticed a loud clicking sound as it was bouncing around inside the housing. I'm careful with my equipment and definitely don't abuse anything. Having been able to use it for such a limited period of time, I really don't have any other complaints. Due to the fact that I'm no longer using it because it's now broken . I have been waiting for a high-performance spincast to come available on the market. It looks like Bass Pro is attempting to do this. I think they just need to go back to the drawing board, and make some corrections. Obviously disappointed. March 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by soldierboy This Reel is a Real Deal ! As primarily a Bass fisherman, I rarely use spincast reels. However, when fishing for bullhead in the early spring in the marshes where I live, I use live bait and because I am not casting much, I prefer to use a spincast reel. Unfortunately, there are relatively few quality spincast reels that are also priced well. So, when I saw these reels in the catalog, I ordered two, in two different sizes. One for my 7 year old son and one for myself. They work fantastically. They are solidly built, economically priced and function as intended. I would highly recommend this reel for someone who enjoys lazily fishing for bullhead, carp, bullhead and sunfish. The larger sized reel has a nice sized crank arm on it for a pretty good rate of retrieve. It is also a nice reel for a beginner or a young person who is a little more serious about fishing than the average kid. This reel is not junk, it is of good quality and a good price. The fact that these reels come in different sizes is a real plus. I have no regrets about buying it. March 11, 2013
