I like everything in this reel
It's lightweight and strong at the same time.
Thank you PLUSINNO
I was pleased with the performance of this reel. I recently spent a week on KY lake and I used this as one of my reels. Smooth casting and reeling. The design is both ascetically pleasing and functional. I had no problem landing fish.
I was given this reel to try and review and it will definitely be one I take with me whenever and wherever I fish.
I ended up with the 4000 model even though I only really wanted the 3000, but kept it anyways. I am somewhat skeptical when it comes to reels under $30, but I have a few that I use as beater reels on some travel or trunk of the car rods. This reel is a really good value, and performs better than most reels in its price range. It is smooth but has a harder start, but that is probably due to the fact that the line retrieval is fast and works well. I paired it with a 5'8 jig rod I had and it worked well. I had no issues with it whatsoever and the spool grip for braided line is extra wide which I appreciate. I would say that on a 4000 it may work better for spinner or crank baits, but it did its job well. I disassembled it after use as well, there is not any oil or grease on it (at least the one that came to me) So I will take it out again after slightly lubricating it and see that improves the performance any.
I would highly recommend this reel as a tough and well performing budget reel. The bang for your buck is totally worth it.
First thing I noticed when stringing the reel was a rubber middle area that would hold the line. It made it easy to reel the new line without it sliding. I was a bit concerned about the weight but it is nicely balanced when casting. Definitely heavy duty reel and will last, it was very smooth when reeling in and probably one of the best I've bought. All in all a solid piece of equipment and cannot wait to try it out at the lake.
So far so good. For a cheap reel.. this thing is pretty darn nice. I’ve only had it a month or so but so far this thing held up nice for fresh water fishing. Smooth!
This reel is very smooth and casts great with my 10lb line. Very good quality, now just need to catch some fish with it.
Love this reel., reels in like glass. Quality seems amazing for the price. I have purchased many rods and reels over my lifetime and I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box to this one 👍. I am very happy and satisfied.. thanks! great product!
Very enjoyable to use for the price. Build seems solid. Smooth action, very little play in the mechanism. You can spend a whole lot more for a reel that's a little better.
Got out last night with this beauty for the first time. I caught six Bass from the golf course pond. No trophy fish, but those little ones put up a good fight. The reel performed amazingly well! It is quiet and smooth, both casting and retrieving. I bought this as a reel for guests to use when they visit, but I think the guests might be using my old reel instead. I’ve used Plusinno lures and now one of their reels. Both have been great! I’m going to try one of their telescoping rods next.
This reel is great! The quality is very good. I fish both saltwater and freshwater, and was surprised to see the capacity of the reel. It has a 265 yd capacity with 6lbs, and 145 yds with 10lb. Fishing saltwater I cant even cast a 2oz spoon that far. The gear ration is 5.7:1 which is really nice and smooth. I upgraded from a 4:1 ratio and it feels way better reeling. The drag seemed strong and with 45lb braid it defeated my grip strength.
TL;DR: High quality, good capacity, nice ratio, strong drag.
