Reel seems durable enough, but it makes ton of noise when reeling. It is also very heavy. I'm going to return it because there's no reason for a reel that is new out of the box to be making that amount of noise.

I bought this reel for salt water fishing after watching a man fish with his. He caught a 54# Black Drum and landed it within seconds.
I set mine up exactly the same. I already had the 7' Shakespeare medium action Sturdy Stik rod like he was using.
1st time out (yesterday) with the setup. 2 Red Drum (22" & 25"), 1Speckle Trout (19") 2 Sheephead (12" & 15", 12 Sand Trout (10-12"), & 9 Golden Croaker (12"+).
Out of the bubble pack, the line would not come out of the reel. Took it apart and found the line wrapped up in the gears. No problems since then.
I will keep it washed down and lubed after each use since I use it in salt water, and it should out live me.

I have used this reel many times and never had a complaint with it.I have caught many fish and never had a problem and I strongly approve this reel for all fisherpeople that like spincasting reels.
