I purchased this reel as my first centerpin this past fall, and I have not been disappointed. I looked at many different reels, but since many of my friends has the aventa I was looking for something a little different. Not only is this reel silky smooth, but it looks sweet as well. The orange and silver are real sharp looking, but once you hook up with a fish those good looks step aside to a smooth reel that gets the job done. The reel pays out line smoothly on the drift, even in freezing temps. I paired this with the Shimano Clarus rod and have found a winning combo.
Pros: Great Look, Smooth spin, Does its job

I carry this in my pack as a backup. I bought it when I first got into center pinning when it first came out around 3 years ago. I had to break it out last week in MI because my Kingpin Zeppelin blew up.
Pros: Great Look, Does its job
Cons: Prefer a little faster startup for slow flows
Best Uses: steelhead/salmon
very smooth pin reel
