Rated 4 out of 5 by fishknife nice purchase
I have used Shimano reels for years and wanted to try a different reel. So I did my research and came up with the pflueger supreme it is a nice reel and handles well. I have noticed it has a kind of rubbing sound to it like the spool is rubbing on the housing. But other than that is a nice reel and have caught fish with it small ones will see this summer if it will hold up to the big fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaddySlacks 8230MG A Great Pick
I picked up and wanted to try the 8230MG reel.
I paired it up with a St. Croix EYECON 7 Foot Light Finesse ECS70LF rod.
What A great, light, sensitive walleye rig. WOW !!
Well balanced and so light.
This reel is awesome value for the money. Smooth drag, good cranking power.
Everything moves smoothly and quietly AFTER I added reel grease and oil after the first use.
Casts Nicely. 5 STARS.

...this not a really expensive reel, but it's the most expensive reel that I've ever owned, and I bought it because I want a long lasting, perfectly operating, light reel. I've not been in the field yet (still too cold for me here in Maine), but I can say that it feels like a good, solid, well-build machine, and when I spin the handle, the bail keeps on revolving thanks to those (many) ball bearings. The bail closes easily; the balance is good, and an extra reel for a second type of line is supplied...

The drag system is solid and reliable, as long as you are using it for it's correct application. The Shimano Saros is an amazing real and one of the smoothest operators in it's price class, no doubt. If you don't mind the extra weight of the Saros and spending a few more dollars, then I would give the overall advantage to Saros, but for a lighter weight reel and solid quality all around the Supreme is a great value.
