I gave this reel to my friend Doug who helps me review these items on YouTube. He likes everything about the reel. He will use it when we go fishing in the ocean. He loves to fish and this is one of those reels that is perfect for that person you know who loves to fish. If you are an avid fisherman, you know that you have that favorite fishing reel you like to use all the time. This will be that fishing reel for Doug. He has children that are 10 and 12 and he will let them use his smaller fishing pole/reel combinations. Doug will use this pole to catch flounder, red fish and other cool fish when we are able to go fishing in St. Petersburg. He said it was a treat to be able to review this reel online because it he likes how it handles and casts.
