Incredible ReelThis reel works as well for me as any of my Shimano spinning reels. My first time fishing with it I caught a 3 pound and a 5 pound bass on a shaky head. The drag worked perfectly. I was using straight 8lb mono line. I was worried about the reel because of it having so few bearings, but it is just as smooth as my high dollar reels. Only change I would make is I wish it came in a faster gear ratio, but other than that I couldn't be happier. I will be getting more of these.

Perfect dock shooting reelI 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.
