Rated 5 out of 5 Hard to beat for the price
I mainly own Abu Garcia reels but have always been a big Evers fan so I thought I'd try one of these out. I was blown away by how well the two that I have bought performed so far. The Dual Braking System (when adjusted properly) makes it next to impossible to backlash and the retrieve is as smooth as it gets. It will be hard for me to buy anything else after fishing one of these, especially considering the price.

Good reel for the money. BPS is very proud of their shipping prices and can get better deals at other stores.

This reel performs well but feels terrible in your hand when on the rod. I returned mine for that reason the reel just doesn't feel comfortable to use. But did perform well the little bit I did use it.

This reel is awesome for any angler that has struggled with other baitcasters in the past. I've owned some $200+ quantum reels and was always haunted with birds nests. After two full days using this reel I haven't gotten a birds nest that I wasn't able to get out. This is a very easy to use baitcaster.
I used PLine 12# and hate to say it but that brand new spinning setup I purchased will be collecting dust.
