      Typical Shimano quality. The reel fits well in the hand and balances well with a light to med light spinning rod. Very smooth reeling. Appears to be very well constructed.

        these are in my opinion the best reels out there I bought this one to replace one that is about 28 years old and still working fine. I just feel it should stop working.. But not yet!!!!
