3 Stars decent ultralight for the price, 2005-02-15
Reviewer: Tom

I like using ultralight outfits for throwing spinners for trout in streams. This little reel isn't bad for its price. It's really light and the drag is actually very smooth for its size. I wish that it was a bit sturdier and smoother but what do you expect for less than $30? ;) I would also love instant anti-reverse but this reel has some backplay. If I can go back in time I would spend a bit more $$ for the Spinmatic Z which is smoother and a bit sturdier.
