Bombproof ClassicThis is a solid reel. Great design with a small footprint that makes casting it all day a dream. One of my buddies owns five of these and was nice enough to let me demo one of them. I've been casting top of the line Ardent, Daiwa and Ambassadeur for years...this reel is as good or better (especially when it comes to durability) than any I've owned. I am incredibly pleased with my purchase.
