Great reels lovely to cast and can bring in some canny sized fish threw the rocks or kelp well worth the money I had to buy another cracking reels

The 525 mag2 big brother in my opinion it has all the strength of a saltist reel but looks far better. If this reel had the magnetic braking system of the 525 mag2 then this reel would be the best on the market but this is a good strong reel and casts very well loaded with 20lb line

Casts like a millionaire,cranks like a slosh. This reel is brilliant. Loud ratchet,easy to use power handle,good casting,smooth and powerful. This reel is a steal. Only problem I've had is the brake blocks disintegrating but I'm told a mag conversion corrects this. Didn't put me off however,I went and bought another!!

Apart from my brake blocks becoming obliterated , I can't fault them.

Very solid and plenty of grunt. Great to cast with and a lovely crisp ratchet. Some reports of brake blocks melting but haven't experienced that myself. A far better reel than the Penn Mag 2 in my opinion.

I've owned 4 for a good couple years now. Brilliant cranking power, smooth casting, nice loud ratchet, solid metal construction and a nice chunky handle to get hold of.. Out of the box they are very capable reels but personally feel they benefit from having a mono mag conversion to make them more controlable and eliminate the issue of break blocks wearing out so fast.. even with the added cost of a mag conversion which is around £30 they are still very good value for money.
