Rated 5 out of 5 by rooster8070 GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have the 200 model and it is the best reel ever. With this reel you can cast far with ease and control. I own alot of bait caster reels including the new low profile baitcasters and this shimano out performs them all.

by Rhino15 The best real for the money period
I purchased two or the 400 models to use for big flathead catfish.I I liked them so much I just bought a third. I could not be happier with the way they perform! They cast like a dream and the bait clicker is a life saver, fishing for catfish at night. Ive tried abu garcia and pflueger but these reals in my opinion are more solid and well made. I would definately recomend them to anyone looking for a nice baitcaster that holds a lot of line. I have also used them in saltwater and they still work like a champ!

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidth626 the first i fell in love with
I bought this reel to learn how to get into conventional rod and reel setups. right out the box this performed great. was learning how to cast minutes after purchase. I've fought countless fish on this reel for the last 5 years i learned how to fish conventional. I fish mainly saltwater on the charter boats. caught tons of calico bass, barracuda, bonita, sheepshead, and even a 150 lb blacksea bass. the one thing i hate about this reel. though not quite the reel it self. the drags are NOT INTERCHANGEABLE. do NOT believe anyone if they say they are. there are NO specific drags made for the Cardiff. the drags are great stock, though i wish it were a bit better. keep them dry and do not lube. they will work great.
