An expensive bit of kit, but worth every penny. A great investment and a must have for all specimen hunters IMHO. Why? Good line capacity, strong stainless steel gears, very fast retrieve, a quick release drag (invaluable with any fish that takes line) excellent handle for cranking, easy to grip spool and super smooth on the cast (when magged) Please note - don't buy the 20s, the 30s are the ones to have. Buy one, try it out, because you won't be disappointed! Before you know it you'll probably 3!
