Birthday Present I received this as a gift on my birthday from my son because it looks like a wall hanger I used decades ago. I once told him it was one of my favorite fishing poles when I was his age. He even bought me a pole out of the $5.00 bin. This reel is not an all metal construction model like it's decades ago predecessor and probably won't last a lifetime but I had to use it so I wouldn't hurt his feelings. Well it is not the greatest reel anyone knows that but it does work well catching crappie, the drag is sluggish and hard to set with 4 lb. line and the rotor isn't balanced very well but it serves it purpose, It catches fish and it will be a perfect combo for my grandchildren to learn to use once they are done using spincasters. I gave it a 5 for nostalgia, and for the price it is better than a snoopy pole for kids. December 23, 2007
Answer to Sand problem I surf fish for corbina in so cal. The problem is the sand, I dont care how much you spend on a spinner if a wave breaks on it, its done. This can happen when your unhooking a fish or just drop it for some reason, sooner or later its gonna get sand in it. For this reason I refuse to spend big bucks on spinners and I've tried a lot of different cheap reels. This one is the best I've found period. Its smooth reeling, smooth drag and casts very well. I was impressed by the feel of it as soon as I bought and used it once. Only bad thing is the cheap plastic handle. If I get sand in the reel I toss it and get another. August 28, 2012
happy i have 5 of these reels . for the price they are one of the best reels that i own. they are very smooth. just a dreat reel.. give a 5 star rating April 7, 2006
Nice little reel for the price I already had this AX series reel and bought the second one so that I could have two rods rigged with the same reel. I use this reel all the time with 1/8 oz. crank baits and 4# line. It's a nice as a light tackle reel. My first AX Series reel is six years old and used all the time, has been dunked a few times. With a little bit of TLC it's stiil reeling in the fish. October 29, 2010

A: 
On some models or spinners the drag adjustment is on the rear or the reel. However on MOST spinning reels it is located in front on top or the spool.

A: 
Have you ever seen those reels that have the drag control at the top of the spool, and the big black knob at the bottom for controlling the drag as well? Shakepeare makes a lot of front/rear drag reels. Not many reels have rear drag, almost every spinning reel you'll see is front drag because the knob on the top of the spool controls that line tension. So that's all that's meant by 'front drag', it's a way to differentiate between those rare and out-dated rear drag systems lol hope this helps!

A: 
Front drag means that the drag tension adjustment is on top of the spool. Almost all spinning reels are this way. Rear drag is when the adjustment knob is on the very rear/back of the reel like the old Shimano speedmaster series.
