I love it and before I owned chronarchs and other Shimano and Abu reel and Daiwa reels and to me they are better. It really just depends on what you like in a reel. They're the lightest reels I've ever fished with and the smoothest I've fished with. The line capacity is low but has plenty of line for 99% of the techniques I fish and I rarely have back lashed them once I got them dialed in and figured out the braking system. I'm replacing my other 10 rods with them slowly. If you're ever at Fork I will let you try them out.
