This is a great reel.smooth castig.as well a good price.i use it on a 7/ 5 mh rod. My favorite walleye rod and reel.your crazy not to buy one.
I want to used this reel and really fish it. Man, do I get the compliments in how it looks and thank you for that! I have found that 12lb Fluorocarbon line works better than braided line. I seen requests for a Defender Pro model, I feel you would sell plenty, I would be one of them. For the money, it's a great reel. Is it as smooth as I would like it to be, unfortunately no. Does it stop me from fishing it? Absolutely not! I have it matched up with the Defender 7'6" MH casting rod and sends my swim baits a country mile. I never tried fishing it. I've caught several bass about 4lb and not a problem at all! Would I recommend this combo? A resounding 100%🇺🇲 YES! Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned fisherman, I can't find anything I can't complain about other than offering a Pro model. Did I forget to mention I would enjoy a Defender Pro model? You need to hear some 3 times before it's sets in.
Casts smoothly and look great. Can't beat the quality for the price. Can't wait to buy another. Paired up with the defender rod makes it pop! Great rod and reel!
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!
