Very smooth reel and priced very well! Whether you are an experienced angler, or a novice, you can't go wrong with this one. Good line capacity and casts very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BassReaper69 Best Reel in this price range.
This is my fourth reel in about a year. I haven't been happy with anything I bought and kept returning them until I got this one. The cast is smooth, the retrieve is fast. I even tested it hard by casting it into the wind and basically trying to have it bird nest or fail on me and it did not.
If you want the best reel under $50 don't waste your time on other ones, this is the one to get.

Got the 1500 for my ultralight, insanely smooth and great retrieve, excellent for jigging and smaller lures

Rated 4 out of 5 by HAP Good reel, but had an issue with anti-reverse
Reel cast great and is smooth as silk, but occasionally the reel handle would spin backwards and hit my knuckles when setting the hook on a fish. Found it to be from the grease in the one way clutch bearing was too thick. Cleaned out and replaced with a lighter grease and all is well.

Bought 2 reels , the 2000 and 2500, the 2500 performed great for using crank baits for bass, the 2000 a good real but probably better for crappie or bluegill
