Shakespeare Contender Spinning Reels 3.2 5 17 17
Reasonable price and works well! I bought this as a replacement. It was a very good price and it seems to be of reasonable quality, I've already caught some fish on it... No fish tale here.. December 3, 2014
Not good I have broken 2 handles on these reels. These are cheap and all plastic. Buy a quality reel like Penn. November 25, 2014
Smooth It was a smooth reel for the price I would recommend it to a friend September 24, 2014
This product did not meet expectations This is the third Shakespeare reel I have bought?the other two performed well. This one, however, runs noisy and rough on the retrieve. Some problem in the skirted spool, I guess. In addition there is something about the joint on the bail that grabs the line and causes drag. Oh well, it was inexpensive and I'll replace it with something else. September 23, 2014
Needs to last longer i had the reel for about 3 months and now you can clearly see it is bent out of shape. yea sure i dropped the rod a couple times but a reel should be stronger than this. other than that its a good reel July 13, 2014
Junk Got the reel opened it getting ready to put line on it wouldn't reel right and then I pulled on the line the line comes right out I looked at it and I would say its defective DO NOT BY THIS REEL!!!!!Spend a few more bucks and buy a better one I'm very dissaponted. June 5, 2014
