BG 60 & 90
I own a 60 and a 90 and have every snce they were first released. I have fished both reels on 7 foot two piece rods in Costa Rica for tarpon on two sperate occassions. Landing tarpon in the 100 to over 150 pounds class on 15# and 20# line was a blast and neither reel ever let me down. The drags are smooth and set correctly will add a real challenge to any anglers tug of war. I always take the 90 spooled with 20Lb when fishing local waters off San Diego on two and three day trips for Yellowfin, Yellowtai, Albies and Dorado. The perfect setup for pitching a chovy exacrtly where others can't with a converntional setup.

A Bang For Your Buck Reel
I just recently found one of these laying around in my house, I took it apart and began cleaning it. It is made very simply, it is a "lifer', a reel that really could last a life time.
I have more expensive reels that may reel a bit smoother, but at the end of the day, this reel is incredibly easy to disassemble, clean and re assemble, which goes a long way.
There really isn't any downsides to this reel, it's affordable, and works well, what more is there to say. Its the perfect reel for someone on a budget, and who wants something built to last.

will get the job done
This real is definitly not the smoothest reel on the market. However, it is a quality saltwater reel that will get the job done well. The drag is sufficient to take on anything you want to catch. Overall this is a great buy for the money but I wish it was a little smoother.

i wouldn't depend on this reel for bigger fish, but the smaller ones are worth their money and perform amazingly. i used the bg15 to catch me countless big triggerfish and even a 50lb tarpon

The one I had had alittle button on the face that stuck out, and the braided line would sometimes start wrapping around that instead of the reel. If I didn't catch it right away, like when your cast lands someplace you want to get out of in a hurry, it would result in a huge mess, and since it was the end of the cast, I would always lose lots of line. Very frustrating.
The way I see it, no reel can really handle saltwater submersion (except a Van Staal), some better than others but they will all fall to it eventually, I say if you rinse it off with freshwater, and take it apart every so often to clean it, it will work fine.
Pretty much nothing withing these reels can rust, its all stainless and bronze, so the mission is get the salt out!
