Cheap thin wire bail!!! Beware!This is an awesome reel,unfortunately Shimano needs to rethink quality of the bail. It's very thin wire and 3rd time out, it bent and the reel was unable to cast properly. Totally ruined my fishing day. Hopefully Shimano will replace with something more durable. Line used was 30lb Suffix braid.

GOOD REELI bought this reel a month and a half ago and it has proved its worthy of small, medium and large fish. I also have a heavy 40 pound braid and it can still cast very well with plenty of distance. Great bang for your buck I would definitely recommend for beginner to expert level fisherman and fisherwoman.
