Customers have rated this reel very highly. On Amazon it currently has the seriously impressive rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.
However some customers where not as impressed. One customer who was less impressed said that
“I was real happy with this real when I got it, however, I have found that it’s a bit flimsy when fishing larger game in the surf. The reel is solid, but the handle feels like it may snap off when I get into bigger fish, like 30-50lb striper. Wish the handle was more solid, like my Sargus SG5000.”
Other customers have said many positive things. Positive thing said by customers are that
“This is the best bait feeder (bait runner) reel for the money I could find. This is the best size for general fresh water fishing.”
“A great reel at resonable price I fish the piers and beachs of north east florida at leat two days a week with two nine foot rods for the past ten years. Of the half dozen different reels I used this reel is the best buy along way.”
“This is a great reel especially for the price. It holds a lot of line. This is the biggest spinning reel i’ve ever seen. I put 500 yards of 40lb. power pro braided line on this and it will still hold more. I combined this with an okuma 15 foot surf rod. one could catch a 100lb. plus fish with this rod/reel combo. i love the option for freeing the spool. i would definitely recommend this reel.”
“This is a must have for the fisherman that fish for fish that likes to run with the bait. You don’t have to leave your drag loose or the bell open so the fish can run with the bait before setting the hook. You have your regular drag on the fron and the rear has drag for the baitfeeder. love it will be getting another one.”
From these positive reviews it is easy for me to recommend this reel to others
