This is a great reel, looks very heavy and capable of handling about anything. The lever drag is nice and very easy to work. Clicker is nice and loud as well. Only issue I have is the reel doesn't have an instant anti-reverse system. This isn't really the reels fault, it's mine because I didn't research it beforehand, but it is something to take into consideration for anyone else looking to purchase this reel. Overall I'm still happy with my purchase.

I have 2 of these reels, They are very adaptable for Salt and Freshwater fishing when going for the Bigger ones in the Lakes and Rivers. I use these reels for Saltwater fishing Yellowtails, Dorado and Tuna.They getter done! For $150 Bucks a reel that has more Max Drag (33lbs) than 90% of the reels out there. Those reels will cost 3 to 4 times more and I have them to, but only needed for Big Fish. For the guy that hasn't ever used a Conventional Reels I recommend this one with the Levelwind and Lever drag it makes it simple! Live Bait, Casting, YoYo (Irons) Etc. It does everything Good! Best Bang for the Buck!!

You can spend a lot more for a reel in this class, but you won't get better performance or reliability than this very reasonably priced reel provides.
Grouper and snapper are my usual victims with this reel, and I've recently begun jigging with butterfly jigs with this reel and it works great!
