I really wanted to like this reel but there is a big issue. When pulling line off the reel in the middle of a cast the line tends to get caught in an area between the reel and the spool. Wish I could upload a picture to show exactly where this is happening. Seems like this reel should have been field tested more by Hardy. It happened about 10 times over a couple of hours. Other then that the reel is great.
