Reviewed by Mike - 1st Jan, 2019 Good reel, but a concerning flaw I used it for the first time today and for a budget reel it worked ok at first. I was feeder fishing with it with 6lb main line. It was after a few retrievals that I noticed the line snagging somewhere from the reel to the rod tip. It soon became apparent that the line was getting caught behind the bail arm line roller. The roller was too loose and thus leaving a tiny gap into the mechanism. Tiny, but large enough to allow the line to get behind the roller and get snagged. I've managed to fix it by adding an extra washer behind the roller to pack it out and get rid of the gap. I hope this is just a one off fault on this specific reel. Needless to say that if the line got snagged in this way and snapped, it could lead to a fish carrying yards of line with it. If you do decide on this reel I'd recommend that you check the line roller first to make sure there's no gap.
