I bought 2 of these reels over 2 years ago and they are still going. The biggest fish I caught with it was a 10lb striper and it held up great. I have used braid and mono on the reels and they throw great. I have bought other brands of reels since and only my Bass Pro Extreme and Johnny Morris Carbon Black can compare in throwing ability. I had set it aside for awhile until the other day and it threw so good it will be going with me on my next fishing trip.

Bought it , fished with it , liked it better than the Extreme from BPS . Buy it , use it and be happy .
I do think it would be a good reel for a first time bait caster . If you are a first time baitcaster and you crank with your left hand with a spinning rod , GET a left handed baitcaster , its much more natural . I have been fishing bait casters for 30 years , for the price , this is a good reel and easy to cast .

Picked this up on sale at less than a 1/4 cost of an Ambassador purchased earlier in the spring.
Not exactly sure how it happened but it ended up being my primary bass cranking reel this past season. Hundreds if not a thousand casts later and it's working as well, which was pretty darn good, as the day it came out of the box.
Even with maintenance, questionable how long it can keep that up but heck,,, even Ambassadors wear out eventually.
