I really loved the concept of this little reel, and think that there types of reels will take a commanding presence in the hardwater industry. Two things that disappointed me are that this reel's drag is jumpy off the start, and the bait alert switch is completely useless when dead-sticking, was hoping for more but guess I will have to live with.

Issues: Location of free spool button, when cradling rod to remove fish easy to hit button to engage free spool. Line gets inside the side of reel, have to remove at times ane if undetected is really a problem at times wound around bears, etc.

Got tired of setting the hook only to have the bail of my open face reels open up or fail to catch the line ... missed a lot of fish. Also tired of new line coiling off the reel when the bail is opened. This reel solves all that and feels good in the hand, too.
