This product’s performance really took us by surprise. It definitely exceeded our expectations. This might not be the flashiest fishing reel, but it certainly gets the job done in a reliable manner.

Let’s get a little closer.

When we saw this baitcaster only had four bearing, we certainly had our reservations. However, after some testing, this proved to be our favorite bass fishing reel.

It accomplishes this by making very good use of the quality bearing that it does have. This simplicity also adds an awesome layer of impact resistance since there are less moving parts to throw out of balance.

We also found that this caster was able to manage line very well with its 20/150 line capacity. We didn’t have a hard time getting used to casting this product without backlash.

But you may have limited variability.

This caster only has an 11-pound drag pressure limit. This means that you'll really be confined to bass fishing and other similar medium sized fish. This is not a caster you’d take out onto the ocean.

We were not able to track down warranty information for Shimano reels.
