I have bought 3 reels and one rod so far and looking to get one more reel to complete my new fishing ensemble. I have not had the chance to try them yet but if they perform like they look then I will have gotten a very good set-up for all my fishing needs. Penn is extremely fast with their shipments and very friendly to talk with pertaining to any help you can ask them for. Very satisfied so far. Proud to be an American.
i got 7500 Lc 3 weeks ago it works real well getting some real casts with it .it is shame that it is not larger may 8000 or 8500 it wood real get it out there. it would be even nicer if the line did not loop under the spool.
I have had a few promax baitcasters for a couple years and have been very happy with them. I came across the chance to buy one of these for a great deal so I jumped at the chance. The alloy frame and smooth bearings give this revo a great, quality feel. It casts great and is very smooth and strong. The 20lb drag is a bonus. A lot of more expensive reels don't have a drag that strong. I've owned it for a couple weeks and have fished with it 6 times. So far I really like it a lot.
While not really a high end reel by today's standards this one excels in all areas. Would have given it 5 stars but the centrifugal drag is a little cumbersome to operate/adjust and can be frustrating until you get used to it.
I bought this a month ago and it is working the same from the first cast till now. It is an amazing reel for the prize very affordable.Casting very smooth, reeling very smooth cant ask for any better. You will not be let down by this reel,works well in salt water.
This thing is smooth as silk. I thought about getting the more expensive reel but got this one on sale and I was not disappointed. Casts very quietly and long. Reeling it in is so smooth you'll love it. Pair it up with a 7' Med Hvy Rod and it makes for a nice spinner bait outfit.
I bought my first abu garcia 9 years ago and it still is going strong. It has everything I look for in a reel a good drag a bait alert left handed and reliable. Could not want a better product for the price
I bought the left hand version #5601, since I'm right-handed, so I can simply cast with My right, as I would with a spinning rod/reel, and use My left hand for the retrieve. It's tough to find a high quality casting reel offering a left handed version, and ABU takes top honors with their superb round casting reels with left or right handed options. I've owned a few ABU reels prior to the recent purchase of My 5601, and one of those I bought during Summer of 1973. Availability of simple repair ... parts has kept all of My ABU reels in service to this day, though I only fish occasionally anymore, due to My advancing age. Many Thanks to ABU for crafting such fine and long-lasting fishing reels! ~DLK~
This reel is smooth and easy to fish with. Very good quality
Does a great job for casting all but the lightest lures or baits. Mag control works great for casting into the wind or when changing the weight of the lure. Because the pro, silver and black max models feature mag control only and not centrifugal/mag controls, they are not nearly as costly as the revo, rocket, beast and mgx models, but deliver great performance and value for all but the dedicated flipping and pitching techniques. Durable, easily adjusted, light weight and smooth drag are some of ... this reels fine qualities. Try one and I think you will like.
I bought four of these reels over a couple year span in the late 90's. These are by far the only reels that have stood the test of time! I use them for tight-lining for crappie, white bass, sauger, but mainly for catfish. I have landed several over 20 lbs and a couple in the 50 lb range. Thanks so much for producing such great reels! sincerely, Trae Miller [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
my go to reels are the ambassadors 4600 thru.6500 I use these reels from spinner baits to Halibut baits Just can not beat them for durability & ease of use. I have had 3 - 6 of these reels around all the time .I love them
Bought a laser spool last year and thought it was smooth until I purchase the Mach Speed Spool !!! Fits in your hand better and smoother than the laser and the shimanos I own!!!!
This I think is a very good over all fishing rod, I love it, it's not to expensive and it's just great I'm glad I made this purchase...
This reel replaced two spin cast reels. One lite and one ultra lite. With 6lb line on all three and 1/8oz and 1/4oz jigs I get longer smoother casts with the bait cast reel. It has all the features of the large round casting reels I use. This is a big plus. This reel was the best choice for me for crappie fishing. If anyone is interested in a casting reel for crappie fishing they should check this reel out.
been using reel for a couple years. fish very often no problems
Used it this evening works great very happy with it
Bought this yesterday and took it out. Looking for something to throw lightweight lures without using a spinning reel. I found the one, it is awesome.
I was deciding which reel to buy for my upcoming crappie dock shooting trip and was very undecided as to which size and brand of reel to purchase. I visited a popular fishing forum specializing in crappies and the recommendations were varied according to each fishermen's needs and usage. I finally looked at the Quantum Optix line and read all of the specs on the various reels since this met my needs as a beginner dock shooter. I finally ended up purchasing 3 of the Quantum Optix 20 reels ... because of the size of the spool and bail. The reel performed above my expectations and everything about the reel was as smooth as could be. I never had a backlash or trouble with the line getting tangled during the whole day's of dock shooting for crappie. The Optix 20 drag was as good as any expensive reel and the anti-reverse was superb without any problems. For the price of these reels you cannot go wrong.
Very reliable and small quantum reel is one of my favorite spinning reels. The you get a good fight with the fish with this reel.
Casts smooth as butter, holds a ton of line and the drag is very smooth as well.
This reel (ZO3 Pro), it's little sister the ZO2 Pro and it's big brother the Zebco Bullet are the best reels I've ever used. Granted I'm a spincast guy (so sue me), but I'm catching great bass, catfish, crappie and sunfish with these reels. They cast far, retrieve fast (esp the bullet) and I never have to worry about backlash or bird's nests. Very pleased! And these are so well built they might last a lifetime! Only small drawbacks are that they're a little heavy and they should come with better line.
I really like these reels. Bought a couple to give to my wife and sister. They really like the way they cast and the smooth drag. Use them for light saltwater bay fishing in Florida and Louisiana. I changed the line to 14 lb ultra thin mono, doesn't hold as much but if you have your drag set correctly and use a heavier leader you really don't need 100+ yards anyway. They've landed several black drum in the 30 - 35 lb range and more than a few redfish close to that. I guess what I'm trying to say ... is that these little reels can take a lot. I liked them so much I bought a couple of the newer Pro series for my nephews. Great for beginners or others who have trouble throwing a baitcaster or spinning reel. The best Zebco I have ever owned.
This is a great deal. I was kind of skeptical with the break sistem but trust me. There's no way of getting backlash with this reel. Smoth operation as well. Shimano made a good quality reel for a reasonable price.
This reel replaced an Abu Garcia black max and it is a world of difference. very smooth and casts very far and very accurately. It also has good drag settings, thought I was disappointed to find that it had a plastic star drag. very nice pain on the reel and I like the internal breaking system
I bought this reel last Friday and took it to the bay the next day and I love this reel!! I adjusted the braking system the way the manual said by weight and it cast perfect and I don't even have to use my thumb at the end of the cast! It's very smooth and has very nice clicking drag star and clicking spool tension knob for fine adjustments. It was a very windy day and I had no problems casting into the wind after following the manual. I will be buying another one soon. This now my go to bait casting reel.
Very good buying experience and happy with purchase
I got one with 6:1 retrieve in May and was so impressed I bought another in June with a lightning fast 8:1 retrieve ratio. I have 12 bait casting reels and after nearly 60 years of casting these are my favorites. The Super Duty handles everything from rubber worms to crank baits to buzz baits with ease. The drag is remarkable, trophy pike are no match for this little reel. Ten pound to 50 pound braided line all cast with ease and the reel is small in the hand and a joy to use. On top of all this ... the price is right. I sincerely believe this reel out performs others at twice the price.
Love the feel of this reel . I'm ready to catch some panfish with my new reel.
Beefy enough for 30+ pound Louisiana Bull Reds!!!!
I have bought 3 of these reels to put on crappie rods. Very smooth and looks great. If you want a very good spinning reel then this is one you should consider.
worst store I've been in yet, doubt I ever go back
