Rated 5 out of 5 by arkieflyfisher really great value
Bought this reel for a Speckled trout trip to the gulf, since backing capacity isn't really as much an issue with trout I loaded a 100 yards of 20# backing and still had room for a little more with 8wt line. The drag was very smooth and I was very surprised at how smooth the reel is overall. It handled a decent sized ladyfish with no problem. For somebody that's getting into fly fishing on a budget I think it would do a fine job. I fish with a sage rod and reel here in Arkansas for trout and small mouth bass and didn't have a need to spend big money on an 8wt setup since I may only use it once a year on vacation and it did great. After every outing where it came in contact with saltwater it got cleaned with freshwater and it looks as good today as it did when carried it out of the store. Even if I got to go more often I don't know that I would upgrade since this reel has done so good.
