Don't use for casting. Anchor or trolling for Steelhead, Chinook and Coho. I bought one and ended up buying one for my wife. Line counters - once you figure out the length of line that is working your set. No guessing how much line did I have out?? Line counter went out on one reel. Had to buy the whole left side $25 plus shipping. Tried to fix bad counter but sealed no access.

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

Cons: none

Best Uses: Trolling, River Fishing

Excellent reel for river backtrolling plugs and light weight salmon saltwater vertical jigging, where knowing how much line is out is critical. This reel will get you where you want to be every time. Even with a line counter this reel cast like a dream. Butter smooth, dependible and accurate, what more could you want.

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

Cons: none

Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, Jigging, River Fishing, Trolling
