I have several Abu Garcia reels 6501,6001,5501 and a 4601 Kokanee Special all outstanding reels. I'm replacing my first levelwind a Shimano 201 Bantam with this 4601 which I'm using for kokanee fishing with light tackle set-ups on downriggers. Excellent reel should outlast my orginal levelwind reel.

Pros: Excellent reel

Cons: None

Best Uses: Casting and trolling

My purchase was a left handed wind reel. I have used my Dads right handed one before with no problems. He also swears by the brand as we also own larger reels. It's easy to maintain yourself and ideal for salmon fishing. This is a great reel that you will have for a lifetime.

Pros: Smooth Drag System, Durable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Reliable, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling

Cons: none

Best Uses: River Fishing, Shore Casting
