      I have three of these amazing reels right now and am supper impressed in how far they cast. I have one reel that i use for my frog setup, i am able cast a good 30 feet + more that everyone that iv fish with this year. And they are crazy light so you can fish all day without any fatigue in your hands, wrist, or arms. I 100% recommend getting a few if these awesome reel you really cant go wrong

            I personally like this reel, It is smooth in operation and can cast a long distance. Once you have it dialed in backlashing is minimal. I use mine constantly while Bass fishing and have all my rods equipped with Ardent reels.
