This reel is a straight up beast. The only reel I would put above this is the Slammer 4 DX.
So far, so good. Battled a 4ft sand shark with no issues. Looking forward to many more uses of it later. Casting is easy and allows long casts with heavier lures/ baits. Dead bait casting is good as well. Great reel for the price.
Very fast service got my order in 2 days!
Best spinning reel I've ever used. Received reel yesterday afternoon, loaded it up with 15lb kastpro braid, paired it with toadfish rod and went out to put it to work. Long smooth casts, smooth retrieve and amazing drag.
