4 Stars Pflueger Medalist, 2005-03-10
Reviewer: Hara Kumaran (aka climberb9)

This reel, although very simple and very skimpy, earned four stars because of its all around mulitude of uses. Load this up with floating fly line and have a good time fishing for Rainbow trout in the Sierras or load it up with 12 pound test monofiliment and bank drift for steelhead or salmon. Put on a s/w compatible sinking tip line and try you luck at fly fishing for rockfish or surfperch. Try a weigh foward floating line for some large mouth bass. This reel has every imaginable usage. The drag is an extremely simple click drag which is easily set.

the 1494 1/2 up with a 7 weight graphite rod and 6 weight line and have a versitle combo.

****/***** stars

Also, these reels are fairly inexpensive- around the $30 which only add to their versitilty
