Well put Sudsy. I went through the penn, shimano, ugly stick bs. Van Staal and lami.....xra or not is something any of us here would fight over for free. I paid out the butt for my set up, thanks DAWN, and wouldn't go back to any other set up. Here is a test to see if your reel is worth what you paid for it. Go out tonite and put it in a salt water river with a muddy bottom. Then in the morning go back and dig it up. Oh, rinse it off in salt water. If you can fish the rest of the year with no problems or tear downs you have a good reel.
