This reel came with the package that included the 7" 4wt. rod. It does fine although when I reel in the line and leader after fishing invariably the tippet will get stuck in the gears behing the spool. It is an easy fix but can be annoying when you are anxious to get on the stream the next time.

Great value for the money
I rate a product 5 stars based on my perception of am I getting more value out of it than I expected to for my dollar. Yes. The real is very smooth operating. The drag is very easy to adjust. I have used it a lot this summer, fishing 20+ hours per week caught lots of bass (on hair and hard poppers and size 4 woolly buggers), lots of catfish (on light blue pheasant feather crayfish), and tons of nice bluegill, spotted bass, etc. The real has been dunked, fallen in the lake, and never slowed down.

I am very pleased with this reel. For the price there is nothing better.

I bought the white river dc56 combo and it works great.
I had to take the reel apart because the line got stuck underneath, when I took the cap off the top with the two screws a small v shaped piece of metal was loose. It is longer on one side than the other, I assume this holds the spool on. I am not sure there is also a flat curved piece of metal that sits on a raised circle.
This should be listed in the Owner's Manual. If you need one please contact customer service via email: https://basspro.custhelp.com/app/as... or take the reel into one of the Retail Stores and the person at the Fly Fishing Department will help you fix the problem.
if you take the reel of of the body and it looks like somthing is brocken or out of place you muct take the reel in for repair. |I have had this happen to me before and in the end i had to buy a new reel because the part was my problem for breaking it.
