I have an Accurist. It isn't bad....just isn't good either. Haha. It is finicky and hard to adjust from bait weight to bait weight. I also have a bunch of Lews Team Pros. Night and day easier to adjust, I just don't like wrenching on them with braid and heavy tungsten weights. Flipping slop is abusive on gear, at least for me, so I use a cheap reel. Funny thing? It's mounted on a Megabass rod. A combo most would never imagine. Lol.
