I've used Shimano reels for years and have found them to be very reliable, but this one is the very best one I have ever used.
This reel has a very light and smooth action, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I recently have been fortunate enough to have my own shimano 200B, its a bit pricey but you get what you pay for... hands down the best reel I own. As soon as you pick it up you'll feel how smooth the retrieve is as u reel,so smooth that I began to wonder if it was retrieving at all. It effortlessly casts as far as any top of the line reel with just a flip of the wrist, when you hook up the smoothness of the retrieve and quality of the drag let's you really feel the fight. For those of you who don't know shimano reels come with the inner brake system set with all the brakes on except for one, to save you the trouble, as soon as you take it out of the box go ahead and unscrew the two pins on the side your drags on, they'll be 6 plastic slides. Down and seated in place is on, pushing them up where they'll now slightly move back and forth is off. I usually leave one or two on . Irrelevant to purchasing but very simple and basic knowledge that I wish someone had told me when I got my first shimano bait caster. I was 10 yrs old with one heck of a birds nest lol. Bottom line great reel and you'll not regret it!

Bought the 200gtb and put it on a St Croix Legend Elite for jigging walleye on the Detroit River, best reel and set up I have ever owned, hands down. Very smooth and powerful and no tangles. If you're on the fence about it climb off and buy it. Awesome reel!
