Rated 5 out of 5 by Great first impressions I used the GC 120 for catfishing today and found that I preferred this reel over my also new Zebco Z03. I am not saying I don't like the Zebco but I admit I like this reel better and the size is preferable for catching fish in current. My only knock is that I do not think you can turn off the clicking noise when reeling but otherwise my first impression was very good. I put this on a new Browning Silaflex 6' medium action rod and I preferred this setup over the Zebco on a 6' medium action St. Croix Triump rod. The Browning/Goldcast combo was supposed to be my back-up rod and reel but that won't apparently be the case. September 19, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reel! I really enjoy using this reel. It offers flexibility and ease of use that can be mastered by a beginner and enjoyed by the experienced fisher-person (I try to be politically correct at least once a week). It is a little heavy but not bad. I am very happy with the purchase. August 25, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by Little Disappointed Received this as a gift card and am not as pleased as I hoped to be with the reel. Paid $50 and expected to have a better piece of equipment. June 18, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Reels I have given all three sizes a good work out and for someone who wants a good spincast reel at a fair price ,these are worthy. Daiwa claims they will handle superline, so I use Fireline on my 10 lb. with no problems so far. My only complaint is the drag has to be fiddled with, as it has a tendency to lighten up when they are jarred around. June 11, 2010

A: 
I use Fireline on the 10 with no problems so far. Do not troll though, the line tightens on the spool to the point that casting is impossible.

A: 
Yes. But, I would buy the Zebco Omega... no clicking noise when you retrieve plus the Zebco has three pick-up prongs on the spindle were the Diawa only has two.
