Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks like a winner Looks like a lot winner although I have not been able to use it looks like it would work for the best with the ability to allow the bait out with ease the rest of the functions i would have to get back to you May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best reel I've ever owned I've been salt water fishing for over thirty years and have snapped plenty of lines. With this reel combo'd with an ugly stick and PowerPro Spectra Green Braided Fishing Line, I have not snapped a single line. That's from flukes to small sharks. July 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied Works great, smooth. Don't regret the purchase. I had it lined with power pro as well with a new rod. June 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My new reel Very excited to try out the new reel. I have this reel on another rod and it works great for fishing off my boat. May 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome best reel fights like a chap caught a 40 pound stripped bass. best reel April 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by why would you not get one? If you have never heard of this reel, then you have never really fished. I have had the same shimano baitrunner for twenty years, without servicing it, and it still gets it done. Every other reel on the market is trying to be this reel. The only real baitrunner out there. Got this new one, and guess what.......fights like a champ. Dont be foolish. If you need a reel and you have the money, this is it. February 20, 2013
