Good packaging. Fast shipping.
I've had opportunity to buy this reel at my Farm and Home store. I have 15 baitcast rod and reels, but honestly the Patriot theme force me to buy 3 of the Defender baitcast rods. Presently, I was able to perchance the Defender baitcast reel at a price I couldn't say no to. So, I had to have the rod to match, right? When I saw the reel in the store, I wasn't overly impressed. It felt like many other mid range reel that's on the market today. I have to say, you changed my mind. My second bass was nearly 5lbs. I wish I could leave a picture of it. For the price, this is a great reel! Its being used over my higher dollar reels, that should say something, right? I DO WISH YOU come out with a DEFENDER PRO model or call it AMERICAN EAGLE or FREEDOM PRO in the $129-150 range. Please, put in your best reel inside the Defender baitcast reel. The one negative I have with it, it's a bit nosing on the retrieve. Oh, I liked the Defender so much, I bought a spinner rod to go with my other Defenders! Do I recommend this reel? YES! Great for a beginner or a season pro, don't over look this reel, cause you don't know what you are passing up!
