Angler’s insight:

I love the innovative thinking that went into the design of this reel, while color coding the different gear ratios isn't exactly rocket science, it makes a ton of sense. I like it. The reel certanily fits well in your hand making the "all-day comfort" claim a legitimate one. All around it's got every characteristic I look for in a quality baitcaster, and it's affordable, not to mentioned backed by a lifetime warranty. Worth it.
