Had I reviewed this reel a year ago when I bought it I would have given it a 5 star rating. After fishing hard with it last summer and starting off this summer with it I can only give it a 3. Would be a good reel for someone who only goes fishing a couple times a month but I fish 4 or 5 times a week and the reel is showing signs of wear. The gears are making noise (yes I do clean and lube my reels) and the breaking system is hit and miss.

            Comments about GSX Quantum Tournament Baitcast Reel:

            I am an oldschool fisherman so I've been reluctant to purchase a baitcasting reel but I finally pulled the trigger today. I have to say that it took a little while getting used to but this reel is very forgiving for the new fisherman. After about 50 casts, I was able to cast approximately 15-20 yards with only a couple minimal basklashes. Now I need to work on my accuracy but overall, I have been very happy with this reel!!
