RE: My New Reel
Looks like a great starter reel, I'd be careful hooking into any Kings or Dean River steelhead with it though.

Tight lines,

I have looked long and hard for any information on these reels, the only information I can find is on their website and ebay. The cost is what triggers my defenses on this one. $99.00 on their website, but $19.99 - $35.00 on ebay tells me that you probably get what you pay for. I'm not saying you have to spend $500 for a reel that performs good, just saying that there are better options out there for the money. For instance the Echo Ion reels are great for entry level as are the TFO Prism reels. Neither of the reels I mentioned would I recommend for stronger fish I mentioned before. I personally would invest (and have) in a better reel like the Lamson Guru or the TFO BVK Super Large Arbor Reel.

There is nothing worse than finally getting a steelhead on only to have your reel malfunction and seize up.

Just words of caution my friend, happy hunting.
