    Recommended: yes
    Cons: durability
    Pros: price/performance, handle, smoothness
    Found one of the smaller size on clearance at Castaway over the winter. Didn't need it but picked it up to keep as a backup for when one of my current stock wears out. It was promoted to the starting line up earlier this summer and it has rocked. I love the handle - long throw, wood. Well balanced, nice drag that has been put through its paces. I'm running a 4/14 braid on it. Big fish so far is 6.75lb LM. So far its one of my best value purchases at $14. Will monitor how it ages.

    Not aging with great grace, which is not totally unexpected. Has some clunking going on - either getting loose inside or gears are breaking down - will have to open, clean, tighten & lube to see if it improves. I did buy another larger version at full price - smooth as silk brand new and I still like the look of this reel. Handle has a little more play in it than the first one. Dropping the rating from 9 to 7 based on the way the first one is aging.
