Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this reel. Owned this reel for 9 days, fished it for 5 days 2-4 hours per day. After minimal use the bail button became extremely hard to press, the spool would make a horrible chattering noise during the cast, and sounded like it had rocks for bearings during the retrieve. Backlashes were a common occurrence. I took the reel apart to clean it up and see if I could find an obvious problem. When I got it back together for some reason I couldn't get the flipping switch back to workable fashion. I tweaked the real to leave it off and went back to using it. 5 or 6 casts and the reel was locked up for good. I sent it back to Abu for repair with a letter explaining all of the above, including me taking it apart. To their credit they rehabbed the reel with no charge and got it back to me in very short order. That said, after a day and a couple hours of use the bail button is already sticking again and the reel over runs constantly. I know how to set my spool tension and brakes and do so with every bait change as well as tweak it to perfection on the first few casts. The constant over runs make are extremely frustrating especially when you're trying to cover lots of water to find fish and find whats going to work that day. I know this is a cheap reel but it shouldn't be that bad. As soon as Sportsman's Warehouse opens up tomorrow this reel is getting replaced. From my personal experience, for an extra $30.00 you can get the $90.00 Lew's speed spool and get the same performance as you would out of a Revo. Customer service was fantastic, the product...not so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny This is my first reel and and love every bit of it. Casts smooth, good distance, ofcourse I've had some backlashes in the beginning but they were all easy to "unknot". This reel has made me an Abu guy all the way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible drag system At first I was very happy with this reel, cast nice and smooth, drag worked great. After three months of using the reel the drag became "sticky" half the time and I got backlashes. On top of that today I was fighting a 6 or 7 lb coho and all of a sudden I get a HUGE backlash and no I don't not push down the thumb bar. Also I did take apart reel and lube it up a few times.
