Field & Stream Ravenna Spinning Reels
Good for the cost
I've enjoyed this reel so far. I have had problems with the line getting "flipped" over the bail though, but can tell this by the way it reels and can flip the line back quickly. No other issues though and it's smooth casting otherwise.

Great reel for the price
I have 2 ravenna 10's for over a year and they are great. Durable,smooth and easy to maintain. I bought this 20 so I can haul in the bigger fish with that same ease and reliability. I will be purchasing a few more so don't stop making them. The only issue I have had with the reels is you can' t use braided line all the way to the spool, it causes the line to slip.

I bought this thinking it was just a cheap real. I was just going to use it on one of my back up reals. Took it out and use it and it work great super smooth and Cast great. I use it on a rod that was home made out of a st croix rod. It was only 4'3" rod and it will out cast most 5 - 6 foot rods and is just a joy to use. i bought 5 more of them sense they were on sale. they are made by pfluger.

I will definately buy and recommend this
The Field and Stream Ravemma rells i purchased worked above and beyond my expectations. They cast great even with 20lb test line we were using. Had no problems to date with either of them. The retreave rate is excellwnt, even when i was reeling 2 at a time 3 to 4lb hard heads, which reall put up a fight. very good product for very little $'s. A very happy customer fishing on the Chesapeak Bay in Maryland.
