Very nice reel for the money. I broke my previous reel and wanted a simple replacement. I'm very pleased with the quality and functionality of this reel.
Loves this product, very compact but strong material! I'm so impressed for the price point as well! I will be able to use this for a long time to come!
Took it out for the first time and had a great trip. Cast a country mile and drag is smooth. Fished it hard for three days straight and had 0 problems. Paired with elite hunter rod was light weight and comfortable to fish all day with.
This reel feels really solid. It is an all metal construction and the bearings turn really smoothly. I haven’t used it yet as I just received it in the mail, but it seems well made and looks like a promising addition to the collection.
Love the new reel. The reel is very smooth and the drag is strong. The design is cool with the dark grey and gold coloring and the metal is strong. I fitted the reel with braided line and it works well but of course fluorocarbon or mono would work as well. Overall a great reel for the price.
Bought 3 of these for a fishing trip with my brother(in photo) and my dad...
Caught 40 fish 20lbs plus.... dropped them in the creek several times...they performed amazing for the cost...😎👍
I've been wanting to pick up a 4000 size reel to use in saltwater. This reel is well made and very smooth drag. It's not too heavy considering the size. Will be easy to spool up the braid since the spool has a knurled finish. I also like that the handle has a button to fold it over for easier transport. I've not had this reel on the water yet, but I have confidence it'll do great.
I love this PL4000 from PlusinnoFishing. It is so light weight and sheer. Excellent value for the money. This reel is just as good as a Shimono or Abu Garcia. It easily compares to a reel 3 times it's price! I highly recommend this product. You will not be disappointed. Easy, smooth retrieve. Get this reel. I have it on a 7ft carbon Berkley rod.
Very pleased with the style, and durability of this product. I attached it to my telescopic rod and looks and feels great. The reel has a nice travel and super smooth compared to some other brands I have purchased in the past. For the price this is a great value and I am excited to get it out on the pond this afternoon once I get the line spoiled onto it.
The reel is an amazing value. For the money I did not expect it to be so smooth. I have it on a telescopic rod with a 12 lb line because I am taking it with me on my next trip to Florida to try it out there. I have put my normal setup away because I am done fishing here in Michigan for the season. This is otherwise not a setup I would recommend for this reel due to its size but I like the reel so much I want to try it in Florida.
I have pictures of it next to my other travel setup to show the size of the reel.
The other reel on the picture is a Pflueger 25 which is much better for travel because it is smaller and much lighter. The Plusinno however to me is smoother and I really like the push button fold for the handle.
I took the reel out only once before it snowed here in Michigan but I was very impressed with the performance given the price point.
I would buy this again and definitely recommend it for anyone that is looking for a very solid reel.
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.
I purchased this reel to use for saltwater fishing. I am very pleased with the quality and smooth action of this reel. The only problem I have with the reel is it knocks my nuckles as I reel sometimes. I have large hands. If the reel had a little more room between the rod and reel (1/2 inch would do). would give it 5 stars.
It is great looking smooth performing reel. Handle shape feels like ergonomically designed.
Now planning to go out for trout, bass, pike fishing with this reel.
Lightweight for me. Nice looking color.
Glad to tried to try this reel.
Great starter Reel for anyone looking for an affordable nice quality fishing reel spins amazing and worth the purchase update later on as time goes by and build more ware on this product to see how it holds up
I just bought the Plusinno BE3000 reel and am very impressed with it from the beginning. The spool holds a nice amount of braided line and is very smooth. It’s light weight and looks really sharp. It’s a basic model with not many gadgets so it’s less likely to have issues down the road. This reel has a 9+1 ball bearing set up which I have really like with the style of pond fishing I do. I would highly recommend this for value and quality.
This is an amazing reel for the money. Operating the reel is very smooth, no hitches! A rubber base on the spool grips the line preventing sliding/makes loading line easy. The bail is sturdy and smooth to operate. Casting with this reel was a blast.
Great product that I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a reel. Reels very smoothly and has an easy to adjust drag knob. Customer support is great and I have enjoyed every Plusinno product I have bought so far. They’ve been the best company for all my fishing gear from fishing poles to lures and gear. 10/10 would recommend using this company and their products, especially this reel
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.
