Rated 5 out of 5 by Gear junkie Great Reel!
Bought the 400. It casts very well. Rivals my Abu Record 60, making it difficult to say which I like best. Very smooth. Have it paired with a Shimano Tescata MH rod, and the set up is very light,comfortable, and easy to handle. I can cast iron with ease. This set up is even great for all freshwater fishing. Great real, especially for the price.

The reel performs as advertised. Have had no problems in performance or durability. Use the 300 and 400 models for bay bass, halibut, yellowtail and white sea bass. All fishing is done by kayak and usually just give it a real quick rinse in fresh water when I am done. Would recomend this reel for those that do not want to spen a ton of moner for a reel. only thing I wish it had was a clicker.

Was under the impression, because of information provided by both Dicks and Shimano that this reel was a saltwater reel. Went fishing for Black Sea Bass and had an enormous amount of difficulty even handling 8 and 9 pound fish. I couldnt imagine if I happen to land a 30 pound stripper on this rinky dink toy reel. Description should not say approved for saltwater.
