I bought this in the 25 series after deciding to step up another level in gear. I will keep stepping up until I think I find gear that can hold up to the amount of fishing that I do...5 days a week....52 weeks a year. That is a lot to expect from a reel. When you think about how many times you will open and close a bail on a 10 to 12 hour day on the water it is no wonder after fishing with a reel for 2 years the bail spring feels weak. This is a superb reel in all areas except one and it is a minor detail and that is why I am not giving it 5 stars. I fish almost exclusively 2# test line and I do not like the way the line lays on the reel. Using 1/64 baits I lose a little casting distance compared to the 1000 series Shimnao reels when the line gets a little low on the reel. But these details do not keep me from recommending this reel to someone. It is light weight, strong, and has a very smooth retrieve and probably the best drag on a reel I have ever seen. As one reviewer said " I am a Shimano man all the way". Well I am also but it was time to try something a little different. I have a Shimano Stradic and this reel is every bit as good and is much lighter. The lighter weight of this reel makes a huge difference after casting for 12 hours. Only time will tell how this reel will hold up. Catching a couple hundred big White Bass in the jumps in the summer really slams these small reels. Reading reviews one really needs to understand that any reel can come out of the box bad. You simply return it and get a new one. If the next one you get does the same thing then there is a pattern. That is why I take a reel out of the box in the store and put the handle on and play around with it. If I hear some grinding or clicking I ask for another one.

by spanishmackerel excellent reel
I'm a mostly inshore saltwater angler an i'm not going to give up my shimano reels at all but i was looking for a fast retrieve reel for working spoons and jigs for spanish mackerel,bluefish and small kingfish. I have never owned a Pflueger but have seen them for years.This reel is awsome! the drag super smooth, nice easy grip on the handle for all day crankin', top quility bail,roller and over all constuction. I matched it with an 8' custom made spinning rod not one tangle or air knot fishing 10# braid in one week of hard fishing. Handled bonitas (little tunny) up to 14#s and spanish up to 6#'s both of which will smoke any drag out there. My advice "get one"!

Love this smooth lightweight reel. Even better than my President. Casts all day long, and the lightest full size reel I've ever owned. Think I'll buy another one.
