With the 200-size weighing in a 8.6 ounces, this isn’t the lightest spinning reel on the market. But again, for the affordable price point, you’ll be very impressed by its ergonomics. I’ve been using it on a 7-foot, medium-action spinning rod and it has proven to be quite balanced and comfortable to fish with. Whether I’m fishing a wacky rig, shaky head or weightless soft jerkbait, I’ve been very happy with how this reel feels in my hands.
If you were to blindfold me and put this reel in my hands, I’d guess its price point to be north of the $150 mark.
