Stainless steel gears are durable and resist corrosion in saltwater, and the Charter Special's 3 stainless steel A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) ensure many years of reliable service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HavanaTrader Outstanding reel
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TNfisher Best Levelwind Conventional Yet
I have two 2000. I have the 2000 with 20lb mono and is very good for party boats and quick fishing outings with some friends. It is great for sailfish, grouper, mackerel, mahi, and awesome for fishing over reefs. My other 2000 has 30lb braid and will bring up the 50lb bluefin, midsized wahoo, kingfish, big mahi, and lots of grouper. The levelwind feature meake work alot easier for when you dont have to worry about line building up on one side of the reel. Highly recogmend it espcially for just $120 dollars.
