Lacking - properly priced at $60 Price-wise this is on parity with the Pro-Qualifier, but it is severely lacking in terms of what you're getting for your $99. The drag system is stronger, but it lacks the fine free-spool adjustments (dual braking system) on the Pro-Qualifier. I've had Pro-Qualifiers for years and the extra bearings in this are unnecessary - the Pro's are silky smooth so long as you maintain them each season with a little oil (like you should with any piece of precision machinery.) Which brings me to another lacking point - there is no lube port. I see it's discounted to $60 - at which price point it is superior to its competition - but for $99 you're wasting money that should be spent on a Pro-Qualifier. March 2, 2014
Extremley Nice Fished with reel for the first on 2/16/2014 after receiving it with my St. Croix Bass Mojo. What a perfect pair, caught a fish the second cast with a spinner bait and everything worked beautifully, and no noise whatsoever making casts , I will buy another one soon!! February 17, 2014
great for the price 5 out of the eight rods I have rigged have these reels after the first one(experimental) I have bought 4 more really easy to use and set up January 5, 2015
Fair Reel I am rating this 2 stars because that is actually what it is worth in my opinion. I think a lot of people buy these reels on sale, use them, catch a good fish, then think the reel is amazing. Reality is that this reel has movement in it and that is to be somewhat expected. The movement is between the handle and the actual reel. It isn't a matter of tightening down. This reel will cast however just fine but there is a reason it is $59 on sale. Pro Qualifier I think is a better reel regardless if they are both worth "99.99." February 26, 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
