Outstanding real.  Good value. Solid reel for the money, mainly freshwater applications. Smooth drag, excellent performance and value.

Phenomenal reel for saltwater and freshwater alike.  Outstanding value.  Real workhorse.

Very stout reel.  Powerful option at below top-of-line prices.  Can handle all fresh and most any salt-water challenges.  Best of the Gold
