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.
I've used this reel for over a year and a half now. This reel has it all, wide arbor, smooth drag and its just a well made handsome reel. You can't beat Wright and McGill products. I've caught crappie, three pound trout and steelhead with this reel. I have full confidence in this reel, in any situation. Thanks for making available.
