 Nice little reel
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Economical, It's just one great reel
Cons: No instant stop
Best Uses: Jigging, Small trout and pan fish, Lake Fishing, Lite line, Ice fishing, Pond fishing
Comments: I have found no reasons to not like this reel,it has a smooth drag that is easy to adjust even with a fish on.The reel is very smooth turning and casts like a dream.I am going to put it on an ice fishing rod and try it this winter.I think it will do just fine,It does not have instant stop bearing which would be nice but it is still a nice little reel and it doesn't make me unhappy with it.I also like the extra spool for another line size for the reel.

 Great ice reel
Comments: Bought one a couple years ago and loved it, bought four more this year to use on more of my ice fishing poles. Love how easily the handle folds so i can fit them in my hard case rod holder for transport without hassle. This reel is much better than your typical ice reel, i don't have problems with the drag freezing up like i do on some of my reels. Plan on using them in the summer also, comes with extra spool, put fireline on my extra to use for crappie rigs in the spring and summer. Great reel and very reasonably priced for the quality that you get.

 super smooth
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting
Best Uses: River Fishing, Shore Casting
Comments: I use this ultra lite reel on an ugly stick 4.5 rod with 10lb braided line. It cast great, and has some smooth drag. Pulled in a 18" striper the other day with much enjoyment. I mainly target white perch with this setup,but what bites my beetle spin has been no match for the reel yet. I recomind this setup for anyone fishing in brackish water.

 Nice inexpensive reel
Pros: Smooth Reeling, Reliable, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: This is a nice reel for ice fishing or ultra light soft water fishing. The drag is smooth even in very cold conditions and is very smooth feeling for a reel of this price. I own 6 of these now for ice fishing and spring crappie fishing. Good bang for the buck!
Fishin Nut

 Great little reel!!
Pros: Smooth Drag System
Comments: This is a great little reel for ice fishing, especially if your using it for panfish. I totally agree with the others who have commented on its smooth drag, it's very smooth and reliable. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I have only used it a few times and so I don't know how long it will remain such a good reel. Great reel for the price!!!

 This is a good reel.
Pros: Durable, Reliable, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
Comments: I bought this reel to pair with an 18" UL panfish rod. I've been using this reel with 1lb test, and you need a good drag with the light line and this reel has done it's job.

 Nice little reel.
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Cons: Bail system loose
Best Uses: Jigging
Comments: Great reel for jigging and hairlight lures. The only con would be the bail system arm spins back a quarter of a turn. A loop of line may want to jump off the spool when getting ready to cast. Otherwise, it serves the purpose.

 Great ultralight for the price!
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Line Doesn't Tangle
Best Uses: Jigging, Ice fishing
Comments: This is a very nice reel for the price. I've been using it for ice fishing and haven't tried to cast with it. The line doesn't get twisted and stays level on the spool while retrieving. The drag is very smooth as well. So far so good, I bought 3.

Big Mac
Plains, MT
 Nice smooth, affordable reel
Pros: Easy Casting, Durable, Reliable, Smooth Reeling, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: River Fishing, Shore Casting, Jigging
Comments: This is a pretty sweet reel for the price. I purchased it for use with a Celilo rod, also from FishUSA. I use this for crappies and small trout and keep it on hand for the kids home from college, and friends who are occasional fishermen. It's simple to use. The checkbox for line tangles has less to do with the reel than the line you use. As with any reel, find a line that doesn't have a lot of "memory". Just about any decent reel works well with the right type of line. Experiment. I have a number of ultra-light reels and this is as good as some of the more expensive ones. You may or may not find this reel at another website for the same price or less, [...]. You get what you pay for.

 Great Little Reel
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Durable, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Lake Fishing, River Fishing
Comments: Last week, my boy and I spent the week in the High Uintas in Utah. We hiked from lake to lake and used this reel quite a bit. Admitedly, it only has a week on it, but it performed flawlessly. There were about 20 fish caught with it. I only gave it 4 stars because it is to early to tell how long it will last. So far, it is a great reel for a terrific price.

 fantastic reel for bluegills and crappie
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Smooth Drag System, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Comments: I have found that this reel when loaded with 6# fireline, and a 61/2 ft micro lite rod with im6 graphite can't be beat when dragging the bottom for bluegills. Minimum lead 2 ft up with hook on end of line. I own 4 of these reels, and have set up 5 other friends with the same set-up.

 Nice for the Price
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Reliable
Best Uses: Jigging
Comments: After having used this reel for jigging through the ice, I liked it so much that I purchased 2 more for additional line weights. These reels will get the job done and not break the bank - cheap enough to buy extras, but not cheap on quality. Yes there are better made and higher priced reels out there, but I'd rather have extra reels for extra versatility than only one expensive reel.
