This reel is very nicely made and performs as well as other more expensive (much more in some cases) reels in similar classes. I've used pairs of this reel in 5/6 and 3/4 weights and its performed flawlessly. The drag is smooth and consistent and the spool moves fluidly after considerable use. The only negative is that the clicker can't be switched off. The only reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars is because W-M doesn't offer spare spools (what's the deal W-M?). That said, you can buy another reel for the price of a spare spool of a comparable, more expensive reel. Recommended.
You can't go wrong with this reel i've used over 12 fishing trips and it performs flawlessly never had a problem and recently bought another one for my other pole, Great reel
