Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than expected I bought 2 of these reels over 2 years ago and they are still going. The biggest fish I caught with it was a 10lb striper and it held up great. I have used braid and mono on the reels and they throw great. I have bought other brands of reels since and only my Bass Pro Extreme and Johnny Morris Carbon Black can compare in throwing ability. I had set it aside for awhile until the other day and it threw so good it will be going with me on my next fishing trip. April 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Common sense Bought it , fished with it , liked it better than the Extreme from BPS . Buy it , use it and be happy . I do think it would be a good reel for a first time bait caster . If you are a first time baitcaster and you crank with your left hand with a spinning rod , GET a left handed baitcaster , its much more natural . I have been fishing bait casters for 30 years , for the price , this is a good reel and easy to cast . April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First baitcaster reel! For my first baitcast reel I thought it was excellent!!! January 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprised! Picked this up on sale at less than a 1/4 cost of an Ambassador purchased earlier in the spring. Not exactly sure how it happened but it ended up being my primary bass cranking reel this past season. Hundreds if not a thousand casts later and it's working as well, which was pretty darn good, as the day it came out of the box. Even with maintenance, questionable how long it can keep that up but heck,,, even Ambassadors wear out eventually. December 12, 2013

Saltwater

Details: 
I wanna fish off the back of the boat for Calicos in SoCal, up against the kelp patties. I plan on just using live anchovies for bait with no weight. Will this reel hold up in these conditions and what line weight is recommended for this application. Will this Reel hold enough line?
I can't afford to fork out the $$$ for a professional saltwater baitcaster

A: 
This reel is not intended for saltwater fishing as it doesn't have the protective coating on the reel as saltwater reels do. We would suggest against using this in saltwater.

This reel will hold 10/12/14 lb line. Suggested is 12lb line, if you go down to 10 lb line, you will get about an extra 15-20 yrds of line, and if you go up to 14lb line, you will get about 15-20 less yrds of line.

A: 
I dont see why not. It can haul up some pretty large halibut, so I assume it could probably haul up a decent Northern with the right rod.
