Good reel, nice for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: price, quality, Free spool
Comments: This is a great reel- the only thing I'll mention is- it's not quite as light in weight as some sites list. It's still fairly light overall.

Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: I bought this reel after seeing it at the Schaumburg fishing show. The drag is extremely smooth and the free spool button is a nice feature. It's very easy to add additional drag by applying pressure with your finger on the reel.

Great in-line reel   (from prior model)
Pros: not cold like metal, light weight, smooth free spool, easy to hold and balance
Cons: drag system could be smoother
Best Uses:
Comments: Great reel, its lighter and more balanced than the ECILIR. The long stem is way better to grip the rod, especially a rod with a short 5" handle. The drag could be a little smoother, seems to have a rough or (high) spot with-in system. Only downfall would be the retaining nut on back side of reel can loosen causing drag/retrieve malfunction. I just had to center the gear and retighten.

My new favorite ice reel.   (from prior model)
Pros: Free spool, star drag, minimal line twist.
Cons: Hard to find!
Best Uses:
Comments: Absolutely the best reel I've ever used on the ice. The free spool and drag are easy to get the hang of, and when you do...Get ready to catch more fish. The reduced line twist makes a gigantic difference. I've already ordered 4 of these, and soon I'll not own an ice rod without one!

Solid   (from prior model)
Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: Free spool makes straight lining deep water viable. The star drag is touchy, and if you aren't watching your bait drop on the flasher, backlash can be an issue.
