Great reel!
Silky smooth casting! Tried it out this week on Pikes Peak and it worked perfectly. Great casting distance and smooth reel in , especially with fish on the line.

It will be missed. I'm about to buy a replacement.
I received this reel as a 40th birthday gift. Hands down, the best reel I've ever had! My son and I were crossing a river and he lost his footing dropping my rod/reel which I promptly scooped up. Next thing I know he's about to float pass me and he's face down. I let go of the rod to grab him instead. After a long struggle, and quite a bit further down the river, I managed to get him to shore out of the white water. I'm sure I saved his life that day. It turns out when he slipped, the rapids pulled his pants down to his ankles "hobbling" him and the force of the water on his jeans was like an underwater sail. It was pulling him under with a lot of force. The rod and reel wouldn't have made it through the Rapids and were most likely destroyed. I still have my son to fish with and I can replace the Pleuger reel. Timmy felt bad about losing the reel. I told him the reel is replaceable, he's not. I also told him now we get to go rod/reel shopping.

Not only does it look great on my Ugly Stik GX2, it is very smooth through every aspect. From the cast to reel with and without a fish on. SMOOTH!!

Worst reel ever purchased
Bought it brand new from Bass Pro. Used maybe 5 times, and pretty sure it blew a bearing. Tired to contact customer service via email, and no reply. Currently on hold at the 1800 number. They better rectify this.
