I think this may be the best spin-casting reel ever made. The reel has it all. The things i love about it are, the reel is made of very good metals and don't break easily at all, it reels smoothly and casts like a bullet, and it looks good on any rod. Some reels have out of this world colors like, gold, red, green etc. Not with this reel, it's black and silver and will suit any rod. Ha ha i know that doesn't mean nothing about the quality of the product but, that's useful. I mainly fish for carp, catfish and occasional panfish action and this reel keeps up with any fish the lake, creek, stream etc. will throw at you. I think it's a great choice for Channel Catfishing. Sometimes i think that's what Zebco built it for. There's no cons that i know of except, the occasional line twist which, is more than likely the fisherman's fought. Well, that sums everything up. Great reel and if you're a bass fisherman, carp fisherman, or catfisherman that likes spin-casters. I recommend you trying this reel out, you won't regret it.
