Great Reel, but somewhat overpriced.

About Me:
This is a great reel with a decent drag system. Used a couple of these reels as well as a few competitors reels this past season. The mass of the spool in dropping lures through the water column was what I preferred in this reel over the others. Once I got used to this type of reel, I'll never go back to a spinning reel, nor will I use the small spool inline jiggler rods in deep water presentations over 8 feet. This reel combined with St. Croix's Legend ice rods with the spring tip is a fabulous combination. Think I've finally found my ideal ice fishing combo.

Pros: Well built

Cons: Somewhat Expensive

About Me:
This is the 2nd BB I have purchased. I was so happy with my 1st one that for the price offered it was better to buy an extra rod and reel than to have my original upgraded. Now I have an ice setup to target bigger fish, and the 13 Fishing quality can't be beat.

Pros: Quality

Cons: None this is a great reel

About Me:
i had a demo of it in my hands at my friends store, it felt like garbage to me. felt like wrong gears not meshing smoothly at all (bad tolerance specs), a wobbling center pin on the spool and noises coming from the gear box/body. the distributor came in a fooled with it and said its getting better as more people try it out, but still bad. so the one i tried was not worthy of being a demo and so no i do not recommend it. maybe for 15$ i might buy it for a gift

Pros: sinker, gifting

Cons: over priced

About Me:
So this is a great reel. The cork handles are nice. It is pretty well balanced and drag works pretty well. With that said there are several other inline multipliers that are contstruction slightly different in regards to materials of the outside, but the internals are nearly identical in regards to materials and the gears, etc. themselves. Many love these reels, but I dissappointed after comparing it side by side to an EC. Even the drags were comparable.
