    This Reel is perfect if you are fishing at small ponds, or targeting 10 lb or less channel. It does not place line back on reel evenly. I have had two of these, the first one I purchased with the expectation of being a decent mid class reel for a decent price; I hooked into a 20 lb blue and the handle of the reel literally broke off halfway through the battle. I was doing everything right, it just broke. I ended up luckily getting the fish to the boat using the hand over hand method, but had a very sour taste about this reel. I took it back and all they could do without a receipt was replace it. So I tried again. Same issue with the line not going on evenly, but it isn't unusable. The second reel is still in working order, but now I seem to get worried whenever a fish is caught with it. I usually set it up for smaller catfish and let my wife use it while I use my other more expensive/higher quality rods for the blues/flats. If all you are doing is targeting smaller cats, this reel is solid, I wouldn't buy it expecting to catch many large fish and it hold up.

      Comments about Gander Mountain Gander Mtn. Catfish Spinning Reel, 60:

      I do have to say this reel is a pretty good deal I've owned it for two years now and recently purchased another to replace my Daiwa. I honestly have no complaints with it and if your looking to buy it try and you'll like it. And I use mine mainly for bottom catfishing on river banks.
