Ratings & Reviews
Value for money, solid reel all-around

Bought the 30 size, currently have it paired with a 7' medium rod & 10# PowerPro. In just under a year, it has managed big Erie smallmouth, Finger Lake lake trout, and Erie steelhead with no trouble. Casting and drag are smooth as heck. You will never feel outmatched with this equipped.
An absolute powerhouse

I'd already been pleased with the 30-size of the Epixor, so I ordered the 40-S version to pair with a 7' MH inshore rod. It gets most of its use for two applications: jigging 1-2 oz swimbaits in the Finger Lakes for lake trout, and casting 1/2 oz and heavier spinners for Lower Niagara salmon/trout. The drag is phenomenal for dragging salmon and trout away from the mighty Niagara currents. The higher gear ratio is helpful for vertical jigging days spent enticing lakers to chase swimbaits up through the water column. Because of the high gear ratio, this combo gets one other assignment: pike and musky. When I'm physically tired or mentally strained from chucking big plugs with bait-casting gear, I'll use it to throw Mepps bucktails up to 1.5 oz. for a change of pace. Lastly, I think it will do great with jigging spoons up to 2 oz. on Ontario for salmon and trout. If you are looking for a spinning reel that can handle the toughest battles in and around the Great Lakes, this is the one.
I have used this reels for two years now. I use it primarily for floating skein for king salmon. The drag on this is 2nd to none. Smooth and solid when fighting the fish. This is the best mid-priced reel I own. I have purchased two more due to how well it has performed.
