The reel is solid and reliable. I know because my dad uses it several times a week and it gets drowned with saltwater in his little boat. He washes it off with a little fresh water and somehow it just keeps working smoothly. My favorite feature is the smooth drag. I have seen it used to catch 2 sharks over 8' not to mention countless grouper and kings.
It is under priced.

by G0nfishn A "must have" if you're a surf caster!
I own the sql15 and this reel will allow you to cast out to where the fish are... very long casting! I have had it for over a year now, it has never let me down.
Other fisherman (using spinning reels) look at me with disbelief when I outcast them!

Originally the penn 525 mag was going to be my first choice due to its reputation. Since penn quit production of the 525, availability is limited. At first I was leery about buying a made in china reel, but after casting it, i can say it is a well built, smooth casting reel.
