Consider this our rebellion against todays ''throw-away'' mindset. We think a high-performance reel should last awhile! And it starts right here. The Johnny Morris Signature Series Spinning Reel not only retains the awesome performance profile of the original award-winning version, but locks it in with our sealed aluminum body construction. The frame and side plates are as light and strong as ever, but dust and debris can't get in, so the lube retains its viscosity, wear is reduced, and interior parts continue to function crisply. (We still recommend regular maintenance, of course.) To double-ensure durability, we added our sealed carbon fiber drag. Carbon is unmatched for dissipating drag heat, and our six-washer system is sealed tight for ultimate smoothness at all times. With its die-cast aluminum chassis, stainless steel main shaft, zinc-alloy drive gear, and hardened brass pinion gear, it's obvious this reel will be around awhile! Other features include Mag Spool Technology package with Ti-coated bail wire and oversized roller, premium 11-bearing system with shielded stainless steel ball bearings and Powerlock instant anti-reverse, forged aluminum spool and handle, and a FREE aluminum spare spool.

I purchased four off the bat, along with 15 of the high end baitcasters so needless to say I spent some money after thinking I did my research. Wrong. Baitcasters were listed at $254 or so and marked down to $169, they're not as smooth as the old Shimano Curado 200's that I replaced. Now, the spinning reels. All of them are now suffering from weak return springs, I usually work around this by closing the bale manually. The spin reels are smooth but that's where it ends. I've had two of them start to lock up and when I checked them out it's because of the large brass retaining nut under the spool which centers the spool stub. The only way to keep it tight is to use locktight.

The first one of these that I purchased was and still is perfect. I have had it for 2 1/2 years and it is still so smooth and quiet. I purchased a 2nd one in April 2013. It cranked stiff right out of the box, so I sent it back for a new one. The new one seemed fine. It has worked very well for the last 15 months, until now. It just suddenly started cranking really hard and is now unuseable. Of course, it is 3 months past the warranty, so I will have to pay if I want to have it fixed. There a few other reviews for this reel that state the same good and bad results. Quality and reliability just don't seem to be consistant with this reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drewski91 Smoothest reel I have ever bought!
Excellent reel for the price! You wont find the quality that is in this reel in other spinning reels at the $100 price rang. Extremely smooth and casts far. Great drag system. Amazing power for the weight of the reel.
