Decent reel-heavy duty spincast
I bought the top unit with 20 lb test line. It has done well so far. When you pick it up, it is HEAVY for a spincast. I do not mind the weight, durability is what I am after. It has handled 4 pound striped bass without any issue, the drag works great, too. After a few trips, the level-wind spooling seemed to pile the line unevenly, eventually binding up against the reel cover housing. So I decided to spool out the line behind my moving boat, with just a swivel on the line, de-kink the line and reel it up and see if that helped. After letting all the line out, it turned out that the line was not even tied to the reel. Yep, lost all the line. I think that the reel may have come with too much line on it, which caused the binding problem. I still think it is a good reel, just pointing out the issue that I had with it.

My Kids First RIG
I bought this rig for my kids fist pole @ ages of 8 and 10... I mated the Synergy TI 20 with this 2 piece CAL 1102 Ugly Sticks... Great Balance and Comfort in the hands ... This is so nice that my wife wants one because its so easy and fun to use. She is willing to give up her $160 Penn Spinning reel for it... Anyway , it casts @ 20 to 35 yards out easy. Not bad for freshwater but better for the Salts... Thanks Shakespeare for PRICE / QUALITY to match ...

NICEST WORKING UNDERSPIN I COULD FIND
I tried alot of brands and models of underspin reels and they all have some issues, but to date this is the nicest, smoothest, most reliable ones that I have used, and to top it off it is by far the least expensive.
