A fantastic baitcaster for the price you pay. Good value for money. If you are chasing bigger fish than 5kg try something else. I used it on a 12kg barra in Darwin and almost broke it to pieces!
The smoothness of this reel is fantastic. It is the first thing that strikes you when you reel it for the first time. The sooth drag is great as well. The casting system is good and it appears to get less birdsnests when casting.
The build quality of mine was substandard. 2 Screws were loose and a ball bearing was missing. Abit dissapointing butit may not be Shimanos fault.

most bearings can be sourced from a Bearing Shop and the ones installed can be upgraded to ABEC 7's for better casting and longer life of the reel itself - to increase tolerances and reduce wear!

best small baitcasting reel I have used, you can cast light lures without the fear of backlash, matched to the BC60A ugly stik it makes the perfect 4kg outfit
you can cast into the wind without worry about backlash, beautifully balanced with a nice drag
