This was my first centerpin reel. Of course the short learning curve took a little but but after a trip I was confident with it. Been using it now for a month and have been nothing but impressed. Extremely smooth and a pleasure to use. Would highly recommend this reel
I started centerpin fishing 3 years ago with a cheap China special reel that i picked up on ebay for about 60 dollars. The reel worked well for about 1 season while learning to centerpin until it started rusting and would no longer free spool. I purchased this reel 2 seasons ago for steelhead, and river smallmouth bass fishing. Spooled with 20lb backer line and blood run hi-vis yellow floating monofilament, this reel is a dream to use. The start up inertia is incredibly low, the reel with turn with one BB lead split shot on the end of the line. After 2 seasons of use, and numerous catches on this reel, it hasn't failed me once.
OK for the money, but can be better
Very smooth most of the time, but the open face design easily trap dirt/sand between the frame and drum. I would try the Raven after I saved enough money. It gets stiff and won't spin freely from time to time, but loosen up the center screw helped a bit. I would prefer the clicker be stiffer to hold the line stronger for traveling. Overall very good product but I would spent a little more for the Raven. However, I never use the Raven before, so I can't really say if the Raven is really better.
Upgrade from Aventa

My first centerpin was an Okuma Aventa, which I used heavily for the last 4-5 years. My one complaint was that the bearings got a little stiff below ~25 degrees. This reel seems to spin more freely to begin with and I've used it twice now below 20 degress with no issues. Seems like a decent product for the price (even if these reels are all too expensive).
a must have!!!
