Maybe not made for saltwater
May 13, 2020
i love this reel, very smooth cast and retrieve. I love the digital sound it makes when I cast. However I'm a saltwater angler and after 7 months of maybe once or twice a month fishing in salt, the spool bearing and pinion gear rusted. I always rinse off my reels with freshwater after fishing and dry it off. I don't recall ever dunking it. I didn't do any other maintenance however, now I will. I was able to clean the corrosion off the pinion gear, and i replaced the spool bearing with ceramic bearings, it's good as new now. If you're thinking about this for saltwater, I think it's fine if you're willing to do regular maintenance.
Prossmooth retrieve, digital braking, cool sound.
ConsRequires maintenance if used for saltwater applications.
i wish i had more

I love this reel. Smooth and easy to operate. My buddy lent me his for a weekend, and I haven’t given it back. I hope he forgets about it!
ProsEasy to figure out, light
Great DC reel at a great price point

This reel is great! Even I can now cast directly into the wind without fear of a backlash. Fishing down here in south Louisiana the wind is also starting always blowing. I will be using this for inshore fishing so we will see how it holds up.
ProsEast to setup Smooth drag Smooth retrieve
ConsSound... some like it though

I've held off spending more than $100 for a baitcaster for many years. I am so glad i waited! The casting distances i get with this reel is very impressive. It is light and also very smooth in all regards.
ProsLong distance effortless casting at a reasonable price, solidly built, very smooth in every way, a no nonsense DC real.
ConsLike all digital baitcasting reels, it does make a subtle high pitched "zinging" sound, but not louder than any others I've heard. I cant think of any complaints so far.

Great reel for the price range. I purchased the 8:5 gear ratio for flipping and pitching heavier hugs and bait.

Used the last three times out. Performed excellent 1 with 12 pound florocarbin and the other with 20lb braid. No issues with either. Plan to purchase a couple more
Pros Min back lash always select the correct setting for what bait you are using
