Well, I loved it for the first month or so. It was extra smooth and a perfect reel. Then little things started to go wrong. The paddle on the handle fell apart first, then I started seeing chips in the reel itself. Now this year the smoothness is gone. The hot sauce (oil) leeks through the seems in the reel.
I spent two hundred something on the reel last year. I expected a very low maintenance, high quality, tough as nails reel. That is not what I got.
I have to tell you that it did get alot of use but I thought it could handle it. Especially for over 200$. I don't feel as if I got what I paid for.
Good luck with yours.
