Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value The reel is solid and reliable. I know because my dad uses it several times a week and it gets drowned with saltwater in his little boat. He washes it off with a little fresh water and somehow it just keeps working smoothly. My favorite feature is the smooth drag. I have seen it used to catch 2 sharks over 8' not to mention countless grouper and kings. It is under priced. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A "must have" if you're a surf caster! I own the sql15 and this reel will allow you to cast out to where the fish are... very long casting! I have had it for over a year now, it has never let me down. Other fisherman (using spinning reels) look at me with disbelief when I outcast them! June 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by super a perfect surf casting reel , could not believe how far i can cast with it with 50# braid line and using penn 11' rod, when you want reach out September 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reel Originally the penn 525 mag was going to be my first choice due to its reputation. Since penn quit production of the 525, availability is limited. At first I was leery about buying a made in china reel, but after casting it, i can say it is a well built, smooth casting reel. February 16, 2012

I have had other non penn "braid ready" spools and the braid still spun around the spool under high drag

A: 
The line will dig into itself a little if it is spooled without sufficient tension. It will not spin if you use an arbor knot and the recommended amount of line.

A: 
I'd go with the Fathom because it has the cast control. I have the Fathom 15 and it casts heavy jigs and sinkers great because I can adjust the control weights inside the side plate. Good luck!

I live in San Diego, and I am looking for a heavier set up to fly line live bait and target large Calico Bass, Halibut and Yellowtail. I'd be fishing in and around kelp beds with 30-50lb braid. Would this be a better choice over the Daiwa Saltist Black Gold 35, and why/ why not?

A: 
For continuous cranking from bottom with braid , your question really is , which reel will last the test of serious use , not occasional use . The Senators are a great grouper reel in florida as well as Halibut reel off Oregon and Alaska . I dont know about the Daiwa your talking about . Id go to tackle store that has them and set them side by side and physically compare them and prices . warranties ? Calicos can get very big and fight hard , its better to have a workhorse in your situation , than a pretty reel , because a pretty reel wont last long , it has to have the guts to do the job repeatedly
