I have been using these reels for bait while offshore, they are a little big for the task so I added a popper and had a nice Blackfin inhale the bait. No issues getting the football to the boat!!!

Purchased 4 during the Bogo Deal. Had them spooled with 20lb mono and put them on surf rods. They are smooth and easy to handle. My 8 year old has no issues working the reel.

Haven't landed any big fish yet but feels smooth and handle is nice. Had a seal take a fish that was hooked up and drag felt great!
ProsCheap, good handle, good drag

Great reel. Holds plenty of line. Performed nicely. Drag was smooth. Gonna make it my go-to reel for casting to strippers and blues. Canâ€;™;t wait to hook a monster to see how it performs on larger fish. Handled 10 to 15 pounders pretty flawlessly
Great Economical Reel

Purchased as part of a buy 1 get 1 free offer. Good reels for the price. They appear well built and handle smoothly. I would consider purchasing again if I am in need of additional reels.
ProsPrice Well Built

For the price this reel seems well constructed and has a good stopping power drag system.

Bought as a back up. First day out I had to use it as my Penn broke. Performed flawlessly. For the price (a 1/3 of my Penns), I will have to think hard about buying another Penn over these reels. I was rock fishing.
ProsSeems well made.....well balanced on a 6.5 rod.
ConsThe bail could be smoother, but OK as is.
Quality seems hit or miss.

I ordered two of these. One was buttery smooth and is still working beautifully after months of regular use. The other had a clunking sound when reeling right out of the box, which developed into a loud squeak/screeching sound and binding up after only one outing making it basically unusable.
