Well made I highly recommend
So I got the reel and the drag adjustment was cracked. It works good I got a balance rod also and there is no hook keeper, so I used the reel and the paint came off. But for 50 bucks it's a good reel.
This small reel have performed excellent the 5 times I have taking to the water so far….
Paired it with the ML Absolute and the reel have been nothing but smooth. Enough for my application, some trout and a couple of 2lbs bass have being pulled by this little guy without any issues. I DO maintain my equipment sharp after every outing, so I expect to enjoy it for a while. AND the price was right for me. Very happy with the Balance Spinning Reel.
