Line gets caught on the bail roller
I have the size 20. For 30 bucks it is very smooth and the drag works well enough that I landed a 3 lb bass (for a size 20 reel, that's doing pretty good) One big problem. A couple times per outing I will have to (very carefully) pull the line out from the roller because it is caught in the groove. This will put a small abrasion on the line every time and I end up with a spool full of damaged line. Have seen similar reviews so I know its a design flaw. I notice there is also about a 1/8th inch gap between where the reel handle meets the frame. This hasnt caused any issues yet but could likely lead to sand or dirt getting in there. My dads president xt has the same gap, should be sealed flush!

Although I haven't used the reel, yet, it seems very smooth and seems to have a
good weight teamed with my rod. I think that it will be a great addition to my fishing arsenal.

Easily the best value in fishing!
I've had two Trion reels, one older one with the rosewood knob (the GX-7 which was great, and now this newer model with the blackened spool which I've had for 5 years so far. It is still like new and I have caught many fish on it. Bass in the 2-3 pound range are no match and the reel never feels like it isn't up to the job. I simply love it! It is strong and smooth, the drag works perfectly, and casting is excellent, but rod balance and action also influence casting so matching the reel to the rod is important. Try the 30 size reel on a 6'6" medium rod with 8 pound line. This blend is like magic for casting light baits. The reel seems to balance extremely well when held in front on the rod's foregrip. When fishing, more times than not, I have this rod in my hand. These reels are fantastic, and priced so anyone can afford them. There is simply no need to spend more.

Was little disappointed
Bought one of these reels about 5 years ago and it was fantastic. Gave it to my grandfather as a gift. Bought same one few days ago and it's the same reel just wasnt to happy having to walk back to the car on its first day use because it kept closing on every cast. This was due to all the screws being loose got a quarter turn on all of them. I usually preach about your reels and honestly it performed like a 10 dollar reel on its first day out. Quality over quantity needs to be addressed to the assembly line. Step it up or I may have to preach about the Shakespeare reels on all of the fishing apps I log my catches on.

Superb reel
I have used my Pfleuger Trion TR130X for three years. It continues to perform well, no dragging, great smooth retrieve. I can trust it with my 8 lb bass in swift river water, or gentle crappie in still water. MUCH more reliable than Shimano's I've used previously. Highly recommend this reel!

Not happy with getting a four beating reel that advertises seven. If I wanted four I would have bought a four bearing reel.
I have looked at the parts list and I found that the reel has only four bearings and not seven. I bought this reel because it had seven. Not pleased with the deception.
