This is an amazing reel and super smooth. I have been using 12lb mono on it and the line comes off the spool like other flagship reels of name brands. With the full aluminium frame this is a super robust and good built reel just slightly uncomfortable long term use being quite heavy at 11 oz (plus any line weight).
The reels are very smooth and impressively built, one has slightly more wobble in the rotor but it's very minor and I only know it's there by comparing it to the other one which just so happens to be almost perfect. Great drags, fairly light, all metal, looking forward to using these in the Spring!
Very solid rod with small details that really tie it together very proud of the quality
Got my spinning reel in the mail the other day. The packaging is very good. Looks and feels like very good quality. I did get it all setup and ready to hit the water once the weather permits.
