Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Reel - Broke within a month I bought this reel about a month ago and put it on an Ugly Stik GX-2 (love this rod). I immediately noticed that it felt cheap and had some issues. You had to roll the spool back to engage the release button, the drag isn't strong enough for anything over a 1 oz. sinker and its definitely not what I would call smooth. After about a month of use (about twice a week) it started to 'click' while reeling in the line. Then I hooked a cat and when it got to the clicking point it just released. I later figured out that the gear that connects to the handle had stripped. I'm taking it back today for a refund. Would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 month and done I bought this a month ago and it has completely lost its drag. I can literally put a 3oz weight on it and sling it with out even pressing the button. Guess there is a reason it's 40 bucks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A beautiful reel I am a striper fishing guide and have used the round, level wind type reels for years. This reel caught my eye the moment I saw it on Academy's website. I purchased two and a couple of 7 ft Ugly Stick rods at the same time. As soon as I received them I loaded the reels with 20 pd line and put them into use. I was so impressed with them I purchased three more within a week. Since then, catching 5-8 PD stripers two the reels have broken. Upon a thorough examination found both reels broke in the same location. The gear shaft that the crank handle mounts on broke in half. The shaft is machined from a cast type material. Most round reels use brass for this shaft. I will not buy another Pro Cat reel. This is the flaw in its design. Sorry I was so hopeful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some flaws Overall it is a good reel but the flaws are you cannot use 1 oz weight with it can't tighten the break down enough it may just be the one I received but I am making it work.
