Rated 5 out of 5 by kjudd34 from Incredible product for the money!!! I bought this reel a few years ago and have used on both local ponds and large lakes. I have some more expensive tackle but opt for this more often then not for it's dependability. I have caught multiple 4 to 5 pound bass on this reel with no issue. I would definitely recommend this for a beginner or intermediate angler. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1508 from Definitely worth it! I have had this reel for about a year now and I am extremely impressed with it. I have reaped in plenty of 6 and 7 pound bass with this no problem. I highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Flip2029 from Missing Part Purchased this spring at local Kmart. Also bought a spinning rod to go with and some line. While putting on line was unable to get the antirevers to work. First time taking apart a spinning real I found that the anti reverse spring was missing. Found a website to order the $.60 spring but cost $4.50 shipping! Made a spring from an ink pen spring and it works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trev from Good reel for the money. At first I had trouble with the plastic handle nut backing out while I fished, but a drop of loctite fixed that. Handles #20 spiderwire well. The drag was okay. It chattered a couple times, but overall it managed to easily tolerate the runs of a 25lb salmon. A nice solid, and pretty smooth reel, for the money. Compliments an 8 foot ugly stick very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by esnels from Tremendous reel! I bougth one of these reels a couple years ago as a practice reel because I was making the switch to spinning reels. I bought it because it was a fairly decent price at the store. I love this reel! I've decided that the tell is now the only tell I need to use! The reel is incredibly reliable. It was definitely a great investment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by David H from Poor Handle I bought this Cardinal S10 for my grandson 2 years ago and the handle knob came loose in about 6 months. He took it to a bait and tackle store where they glued it back together which didn't last. It looked like a durable reel when I bought it but now I can't even find a replacement handle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jbbeer from Cheap materials Used this less than a handful of times and the handle assembly broke(while hooked up to a nice fish). it's impossible to find the part anywhere, spent 2 days trying and this website is no help. Very dissatisfied.
