I have never fished with one but my Bud wants to sell his to me for $30 he never used it. Looks kinda nice, Has anyone of you fished this reel and what do you think of it? :-[ :-/

I have one and love it! It casts very well and is really smooth. For 30 dollars you should definitely get one!

I've used mine to catch a couple of nice 3lb LM but it is a gimmick and you can impart action with the rod tip. I paid $50 for mine so at $30 its a steal and does cast quite well.

I have one on an '6 Allstar rod, and it works pretty well.  It doesn't throw light lures the best, but, overall I'd say it's a good deal for $30.  It's pretty smooth, and the drag works well.  I've caught a few smallies, and a bunch of LM on this rig.  I don't use the twitchin' bar that often; It does work well, I just don't use it a lot.

For $30 tell me who your friend is and I will buy it from him.   LOL

I have 2 of these reels that I bought last year when I was in a pinch for a few reels.  I have not used them all that much, but I was impressed with them for a $50 reel.

I would save the $30 for something else. At first this reel seems great for the price, but after being used the drag will start to slip and bail may not engage properly. I returned mine two months after purchase. If you do a search on this reel you will find that several other of our members had similar problems.

I have had the same problems after some use.  The gears don't engage well after you make a cast.  It does seem impressive when you first use it though.

My brother uses one for burning lipless baits. On the right days with a 7ft rod and 3/8 to 1/2 oz red eye shad it will nearly if not empty the reel of line. I can't see anything casting medium weight stuff better......

Uses it alot and has held up great. I'll buy it for that price if you don't want it ;D

I was thinking of putting it on a 7" MH or M rod like the KVD Sig. Series on sale at BPs. And I was thinking of small jigs and jigs like the Spot Remover.
