Due to its price point, this reel isn’t going to be for everyone and that’s totally okay; we make a concerted effort to test and review gear in every price point. But if you’re a finesse-fishing enthusiast, I strongly recommend putting this reel in your hand. Whether you have to borrow one from a buddy, try one at a store or whatever… I think you’re going to be blown away by its weightlessness and beautiful design.
For me, I expect this to be one of those reels I keep in my boat for years upon years. I’m not one who buys into marketing claims and studies the weight of reels but man, this is going to be a hard one to beat for me. I actually can’t wait for the post-spawn season because I am going to be skipping a wacky rig for fry guarders on this reel every single day.
