Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice reel at a value price Casts well, easy to adjust. For the price, the quality is excellent. April 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Okay for the money This reel is okay for the $60 price tag. Have two of them ordered at the same time and both have some movement in them. If I was goin to spend the money again I would spend the extra $20 and get an abu-pro max reel. April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very smooth reel I have use the reel for a crankbait reel very smooth casting. I locked the brakes on the spool to be able to use light weight plugs April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel I had no idea that I could ever use a baitcast reel. After watching and learning from the endless youtube video available, I went out to my partially snow and ice covered New England back yard and practiced. It took a bit but I can now cast a considerably long way with now snarls at all. I have not fished with it yet, but as soon as the ice is gone, I will be on the ponds and lakes to use it some more. Don't get discouraged- if I can do it, so can you! April 4, 2014

A: 
Pro Q hands down...

This one isn't bad while it's on sale for $60 if $99 is out of your reach. Though the Pro Q's go on sale from time to time for ~$75 which unless you're in a rush I'd hold out for.

A: 
Would not recomend it for catfishing. Very small spool. I would look into some saltwater series low profile reels. Will have a bigger spool for more line and also better drag systems for both bass and cats

A: 
If you're talking southern catfish 15lbs + then you'll wear out the drag rather quickly - you want something with a more robust drag system...

If you're up north like me (CT) then catfish aren't all that much bigger than the bass so it's no big deal.

A: 
It depends on the gear ratio. Any reel "can" be used for catfishing, but when I go, Like heavy gear just in case I hook into a big blue or flathead. I use my muskie gear, but I've seen all bass gear used.

A: 
It's safe as long as you maintain the cleanliness of the reel after its been used for saltwater. You have to lube the gears and clean the salt off, for a start
