Good reel. In case you haven't read it, this thread will tell you all you need to know.

One more thing. After a few trips to confirm it works ok, you may want to have it cleaned and lubed. It's likely going to be packed with grease and over oiled.

I like mine. It's mounted on an Avid 7' MH/F rod and spooled with Cortland 50# Masterbraid. I also have an '09 Premier that I'm very happy with 8-)

I'm the guy that takes a brand-new reel, opens it up and completely dis-assembles it, flushes out all the bearings and gives it a "proper" lubricating. Your casting performance will be significantly improved if you at least flush the spool bearings and lube with a light bearing oil. Same goes for the Curado's

You won't be disappointed.  Good choice.

Well if I do get it cleaned a lubed I'll probably do it myself since I like to take things apart to see how they work.  That being said I'll take precautions to make sure I can put back together and have it in good working order when I get it out on the water. Hopefully all goes well :)
