Rated 4 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value This is a great reel for the money. It's a reel anyone could use. No it's not an Abu but I didn't pay an Abu price. Throws great and blind folded you couldn't tell it from a Quantum PT when you turn the handle. If you have trouble with this reel you likely have trouble with your other reels. Thanks Bass Pro Shops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by value I needed a light reel to worm fish with because of arthritis in my hands. This reel fit the bill. I've been fishing with it for three years. I am retired, live on Lake Eufaula Oklahoma and fish more often than most. this reel with my micro lite rod is my go to. It cast well, the drag works just like an expensive reel. It will handle large fish. It is a great value at this price. August 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by A challenge It would really be nice if it had come with a user's guide/instructions. I may like it better once I get it figured out, but for now, it is a challenge. I still haven't totally figured out which knob adjusts what with the exception of the drag. July 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nitro Tournament Reel Junk Save your money and buy a Abu BlackMax reel. This reel is junk ... Will be returning when I go back to BPS. July 8, 2014

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: 
I have caught some large bass on it and a flathead about 7 #s. I think you could fish it with braded line or 17 to 20 # fluro and be ok. If you after fish over 20#s you might want a heaver reel.

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.

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
