Rated 5 out of 5 by Josa1 Plueger Microspin reel
yes i would recommend this reel, all my life i have use Zebco microspin reels and have gone through my share some good held up longer then others, two years ago i decided that enough was enough i wanted a better reel i tried the Plueger and it has been a great reel, decent casting, nice pickup and good smooth action. this is the third year for it, went out last weekend and caught my share of crappie with it. if you try to use it on larger fish like bass and carp you probably will mess it up this is a pan fishing reel hence the microspin! if you use it for crappie and bluegill and that sort you will be very santisfied and happy you chose it. in my opinion beats the zebco hands down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cdorton Ok for the price....
I have owned this for less than a year. It worked great out of the package, we caught a ton of Bluegill and landed some big Bass, Catfish, and some Carp now and then. Last week, the drag totally locked up. Despite all efforts, can't fix it... I clean my reels, store indoors, and generally take very good care of them so not neglect. I'm not sure if one of those huge carp did my reel in or if it is some type of a defect. It was fun while it lasted. For the price, I got my money worth but sadly, it has retired at a young age.... Possibly could have been fixed under warranty, but again for the price... I'm better off just replacing! I would try this reel again...

I found the reel doesn't cast as easy as it should. I'm going to return mine after one use and get another spinning reel. I used the reel in cold weather to tight line crappie. Using a small bell weight on the end of the factory installed mono, I found the line would not freely feed when letting the bell weight pull the lure to the bottom.
The reel would probably be great for a kid to learn but for me it didn't fit the specific use I purchased it for.

The pickups on these reels will not pick up line over 6lb. test worth a darn. I lost fish on 8lb. test twice and have never used again. I know this reel wasn't really meant for over 6lb. test ,but I fish muddy water in rainy spring time . I can see the heavier line easier and would like to use it if I choose to.Not a good buy,trust this conclusion.

Yes it actually is very simple. You loosen the screw all the way off on the opposite side of the handle. you can pull the handle out and change it to the other side and put screw on again opposite the handle . While you change sides it will be an excellant time to add a drop of fishing reel oil to the bearing that is exposed when you remove the handle. Good luck.
