I just purchased one each of the FD 1000, FD 2000 & FD3000. I have been using Quick reels sense 1977. They last forever. They will only get smother with age. I have spent alot of money on other more expensive brands and not been happy. The only thing that comes close are the Fin-Nor IFS Inshore spinning reels. I thank Fish USA for carring these fine reels.
