Love it.

Just picked this reel up last week and had a chance to throw it the other day to give it a try. I love it. I picked it up in a combo package with the matching "American Hero" 6'10 rod. Lew's came up with the American Hero combo as a thank you to verterans of armed forces so it gave me another reason to buy.

Sleek feel in your hand. 7.2 ounce reel. 7.1:1 gear ratio. Magnetic control system. 5 bearing system.

Looking forward to getting more fishing done with it this season but as of right now for the price, $89.99 combo, I don't think I've found a better deal yet.

I just like a reel that feels good in your hand and doesn't wear you out by the end of the day and this meets both of those requirements for me.
