I would suggest an older version of the Shimano Stradic if you want serious value for your dollar. A 2500 should be fine for bass. The 2500 Saros is another great reel for the price.
The SSG is a pretty compact reel but it is not very smooth and you can find some great reels for similar money that have better attributes. Again, for freshwater reels there are a ton of good options, but if you are planning on using it for very light saltwater applications it should be fine.
I hope this helps
Compared to my Shimano reels and Penn's Battle and Conquer reels this is not very smooth.
It is not rough or "gritty" but smooth is relative to what you are used to. I can give a hard crank to the handle of my Shimano Saros or Stradic and it spins "effortlessly" after my hand is off the handle.
The SSG will continue to spin after a few cranks, but it does wobble a bit.
I hope this helps
