This reel is AWESOME!!!
I have had it out on the water a few times, lighter crank baits to heavy spinner baits this thing cast smooth and NO backlashes. My seven year old can cast it with no issues. I have a few Abu revos that I also use I can buy two of these for the price of the SX reel. I'll be buying more soon for sure.

I have a variety of reels, ABU, Lews, Shimano and one KVD. The PQ for the money is as good as all of them. You cant go wrong buying this reel. If I lost everything and had to start over this would be the reel I would purchase.

"I don't normally write reviews, but I'm very pleased with this reel. Last year after much research, I ordered the Pro Qualifier 7.1:1. After using it during 2013 season it held up and performed just as expected. Very smooth with great magnetic breaking and drag system. I decided this year to purchase another 7.1:1, and two 6.4:1 to round out my arsenal. I would recommend this to anybody looking for a solid, dependable reel without breaking the bank.
