I live in Central Florida. Huge bass all around me. I bought this reel 3 weeks ago and I've absolutely beaten this thing to death. The drag is great, it casts smoothly and has plenty of power cranking in 4/5 pound bass. Feels kinda cheap but has proven to be tough so far. I learned about Favorite products by watching Youtuber Bluegabe. Looking at a the new rods now. Can't wait to try it. 👍👍
I bought this for the gear ratio to use on a cranking stick. I like the look of the reel and the performance.
