About Me:
Avid Fisher
I have two different sizes the 600 and the 700 and have used both throughout the last year and have been very satisfied with the performance of both. The 600 holds an over 300 yds of 25lb test and is very castable. The 700 spooled with 50lb mono is capable of moving all but the largest grouper off the bottom and bringing them boat side.
Pros: price, Craftsmanship, Capacity
Cons: none
Best Uses: saltwater bottom fishing, saltwater trolling
quality reel for salmon

About Me:

Great for pulling 400+ feet of copper in the Great Lakes for salmon. Drags tend to become sticky before they should but work great after upgrading to the aftermarket carbon fiber discs.
Pros: Size, Capacity, Craftsmanship, Gear ratio
Cons: Drag
Best Uses: Copper trolling line
