I was looking for a cheap reel to replace my Pflueger that I want to retire. And I can say I couldn’t be more pleased. I tell ya, for the money, it’s the best I have found. I have definitely been thrifty when it comes to most of my fishing gear but this truly doesn’t fit the mold of thrifty. Low cost but definitely quality. I use it for trout, pan fish, bass, and even have used it for Muskie and Pike. It’s light weight but sturdy and performs excellently. I haven’t noticed any wear related to rust and it performs well with the minimum maintenance expected on any reel.

this reel is WAY better than i thought it would be. I like it more than my sage which was twice the money. the drag is ten times better than i expected. you have quite a bit of adjustment if you get a fish on the reel. i have the 5/6 weight. this thing is very well built. i like that it is quiet when you are reeling in but still clicks when drag is being taken out. i like that everything is sealed but am somewhat skeptical of how well it is sealed. time will tell and for 50 bucks im not even worried about it. what a sweet reel.
