This reel is awesome. It has smooth retrieve and casts very far. The first time I used this reel it amazed me. It casts twice as far as my two-year-old pro max- even with a lighter lure. I set it up with 12 lb mono line and it just sails when I cast out a spoon or a crankbait. I would highly recommend this lure to anyone who loves fishing (and can afford it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basser Reviews do not lie!
All the positive reviews you will find on this reel are true. For the money you can not beat this one. I use it as a spinnerbait set up on a Veritas rod. The two look great together however a St Croix would work too! 6.4 gear ratio is very versatile and you can use it for many setups. I am a huge fan of Abu but they sure love their grease. Make sure you clean it up before you take it out. My first time out with it I caught a 10.2lb Largemouth. Put up a fight in some timber but she was easy to control with this reel. A lesser reel I would have lost her! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cman628 Best reel I own!!!!
I don't have any bait cast reels that are the same. I have 5 bait cast combos and none of them can cast as far as this reel can! I have the Abu Garcia Revo S rigged up with a 7'6" Medium Heavy 14-25lb. test Abu Garcia Veritas rod with 40lb. Power Pro Braid and I use this as my top water/light flippin'/big swimbait rod. This rod will throw a 5/16oz. frog about 30-40 yards! It does not birds nest very easily and it can cast into the wind pretty well! This is now going to be the only reel I buy; the only down side is that they don't make them in any other gear ratio's. Other than that, I think it's the best reel on the market!
