I have four of these reels match to Daiwa Sealine 10ft rods. These reels perform flawlessly. The drag is smooth and consistant and they cast like bullet. We use them for cats and carp(don't knock it I live in Kansas there's not that much to do) and they have not had any problems at all. These are great reels for the budget minded fisherman and can't find any reason not to recommend these to anyone.

I put the EMcast 5000 reel thru the works for a year, bank snaggen 50lb+ psddlefish and catchen blue and flathead catfish over 50lbs. It held up never gave a hint of giving, drag never locked up even when put to long screamen runs with 25 lb line. Lots of cranken power for a spinning reel. I love the way the spool is set up no under spool looping ever. Reel has good smooth balance and works wonders on a 10ft surf rod. It casts well and is just a good tough all aroung spinnen reel for large fish. I would recomend this reel to anyone who fishes for large catfish, stripers, or who enjoy the sport of bank snaggen paddlefish.

I love this reel! I bought the Emcast Sport 6000 to take on a trip to Panama City Beach, and I couldn't have asked for a better piece of equipment for the price. The action is smooth, the anti-reverse works flawlessly, and the large-handled crank makes pulling in heavy fish much easier. My first day on the gulf, I managed to hook two catfish--each about 8-9 lbs. Once out of the water, I made a few turns to tighten the drag and easily brought them up 50 or 60 feet to the pier--no slipping, skipping, or grinding gears at all!
I caught many other fish throughout the trip, and despite the tough fighting nature of ocean fish, this reel performed flawlessly--it almost felt unfair how easy it was to bring in big fish.
I have the model 6000 mounted on a 9ft Shakespeare Ugly Stik Big Water (medium-heavy action). I filled one of the spools with 20lb Trilene Maxx monofilament, and the other with Bass Pro 30lb braided line. I did manage to drop the reel in the sand a couple times, but it seemed completely unaffected. All of the joints and moving parts are very well sealed. Also, the push-button collapsable handle is very convenient for storing the reel.
I'm sure there are many superior saltwater spinning reels out there, but for 65$, I think this one is pretty hard to beat. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a quality reel on a budget.
