Final impressions

handle of a bass fishing reel

I think you’re going to be blown away by the casting distance and line management of this reel. As you can see in all of these photos, I’ve been using it with straight fluorocarbon which as you probably know, can be a nightmare on the wrong spinning reel. I haven’t been dealing with any line loops, wind knots or random tangles whatsoever. Even if you’re casting a super-finesse rig such as a Ned rig, you’re not going to have any problem optimizing your casting distance with this reel. Not to mention, the flat-green paint job looks really cool and although fishing isn’t necessarily a fashion show, it sure does look good sitting on the front deck of my Skeeter.
