Rated 5 out of 5 by OlderDude Bang for the buck
I have been fishing this reel for the past four to five years and have now accumulated 15 of them. I have over a decade of experience in reel maintainance and repair and believe the Pro Qualifiers better than the $150 Shimano & Pfluger reels that I own.

This reel worked great for a bit. Less than a year (with proper maitenance and cleaning) and the gears are grinding. Didn't expect that to happen with a $100 reel. Would recommend spending a little extra or looking into Lew's reels.

I have four Pro Qualifier reels on Carbonlite rods. The combination is outstanding for any type of bass fishing you want to do. Buy em, you'll like em!

I have had five of these reels and in a time frame of one and a half years only two still work. I would rather spend a little bit more and get a reel that I can depend on when I need it. I fish about 3 times a month and take very good care of my equipment. Only used for fresh water bass fishing.
