Mystic ValueBought almost a year ago and find it to be every bit as good if not better than the highest end Shimano reels. I am use to $500 + and up reels and this thing is a steal at retail. Total 5 star rating.

I've had my H2O Mystic for a couple months now and it casts better than my high dollar reels. I paired this 5.8 ounce reel with the new H2O Express 7' MH micro guide rod that weighs 3.6 ounces for super lightweight
Very smooth so far and hard to backlash set 1/2 off and 1/2 on. Casts further than anything I've ever used and I don't have to change settings when using heavier or lighter lures.
It's still early in my review process. I haven't had a spotted bass over three pounds on it yet (summer time bite) so the drag is still a concern for me. It seems to just need a little lubing every 20 trips or so like most reels.
