I bought this reel because I needed to quickly put together a rig for carp fishing during a weekend stay in Knoxville. Didn't want to break the bank, and decided on this one because it had good reviews.

I wasn't expecting a once-in-a-lifetime kind of bargain reel with this one, but was satisfied taking it out of the packaging. I did note that the drag clicker was so thin that under heavy usage it was sure to fail. All and all, I felt happy with the quality for the price as I put it on an old Heddon rod.

After two early morning sessions on the river, the drag was no longer functioning. The threads in the drag tensioner had stripped out with two days of regular usage. I returned it to the store without problems.

This could be a great reel with a few upgrades, which I would be happy to pay a few dollars more for. It seems marketing took precedence over quality, however, as features such as a tapered spool and zero-reverse are a bit unnecessary at this price point. I would much rather see that engineering go into better internal components and stronger alloys used in high-wear parts.

    Use for Musky fishing.
    Casts heavy baits far.
    Very quiet reeling in.
    15 lb. test line, not one tangle.
    Heavy duty feel to it.

      I do have to say this reel is a pretty good deal I've owned it for two years now and recently purchased another to replace my Daiwa. I honestly have no complaints with it and if your looking to buy it try and you'll like it. And I use mine mainly for bottom catfishing on river banks.
