Anyone have any experience with these? I get a lot of emails about sales and I'm curious if they're any good. I know the fishing reel world is a tight one and not many new companies come into it; how do they compare to others?

I went ahead and jumped on the deal last month with the baitcasters. I finally got to use them last weekend. They are smooth reels and I was able to adjust pretty quick. They won't be my main flipping reels and I never had the intention of them being my "go 2 reels"

I played around with one of their reels, don't remember the line. It felt cheap. Enough so that I instantly didn't want one. I've only heard two people talk about them, one of them liked them, one of them said they make cheap knock off junk. I tend to believe the second guy more tho.

One of the guys I room with at the Bassmaster tourneys is "pro staff" for them. They are complete [censored]. He has about 100 of em. Every time I room with him, he offers me 10-12 of them in leu of his half of the hotel for the week... I tell him I'd rather him pay me in St Criox rods or cash. Lol. He has so many, when one quits...he just chunks it in a box and grabs a new one. Lol. I told him he was a whore for taking them. I'd rather BUY decent stuff than use cheap [censored] just because it was free.
