I have handled the reel not fished it. Sweet little UL reel Graphite frame, sideplate, rotor - 4.7:1 GR, 22"IPC - 6.9oz. - felt real good on the custom 6'6" mlf Tenn. grip, spin rod I had with me . What do you intend to chase with it?

Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!

Those little perky reels are great for panfishing and ..... that 's about it, trying to pursue bass with them is more they can take. I don 't mean that the drag won 't be good, or that the reel is going to be trashed to pieces or that they can 't handle bigger fish, it 's just that they just cast like crap, the spool is so narrow and short that the memory the line gets from being coiled in such premises behaves pretty much like a slinky once it 's out of the reel, good reel for 2-4 pound test.

If you want a reel for finesse fishing for bass with light line like 6-8 pound test better get a bigger reel or get a Japanese reel with Shallow spool, don 't look at the carrying capacity of the spool, they don 't hold much line after all, it 's the size and shape of the spool what makes those reels cast itsy bitsy baits into the next zip code with little or no line coiling after the line leaves the spool.

The Daiwa Revros ( JDM ) is one heck of a shallow spool reel and it costs about 80 dollars. ( one of the best purchased I 've made ).

Hello gentlemen

thank you for the quick response

I fish a couple small lakes with lots of 1LB bass

both largemouth and smallmouth

one lake has lots of pads but the other is not too congested

and just wanted a down sized set up for times when the one pounders are hitting

thanks

Jim
