I love all my newell's that i have (2)220 (2)332. i have had them for 4 yrs now and they still work great.. They are very light and easy to cast. When you fish for 5+ hrs casting, cranking just so EASY.

In my opinion, newells give you the most bang for the buck. One of the best casting reels, easy to take apart and clean, relatively priced well. Downside: they are loud, no infinite anti-reverse. If you ever need a reel to fly line baits, newells win hands down!!
