Bought this reel and straight out of the package noticed that the anti-reverse switch doesn't work. Emailed Favorite around 6:30pm on a Friday night and didn't get a response yet, but I didn't really expect one yet. (It is now Saturday). Hopefully they get back to me on Monday.
it’s an absolute crime how much money you guys charge for this reel. I have a diawa rev ros that cost me less money and 4x the quality of this shay bird. In all honesty this reel feels like it should cost $20, i’ll never buy anything from favorite again.
We are sorry that you feel that way. Customer service will be in contact to learn more about your experience and see what we can do to change your mind.
The Shay Bird is a great finesse style reel to use for drop shot or other finesse techniques. This reel is very lightweight and the anti-reverse works amazing when needed and the skeletal rotor system just helps this spinning reel in all to make it a great fit in the tackle lineup, and it goes great with the white bird spinning reel to make it a deadly drop shot setup to use for your tournament fishing.
