I have 2 of the PQ2s and they're not my favorite but for the money they're not bad. The reel itself is built solid but they don't seem to cast real well for me. Brake system is a bit screwy. My original PQ is one of my favorite reels though.
I have the previous PQ model that came out, got them while they were on clearance. $50 was a good deal for what they are, I personally wouldn't pay full price for them though. Unfortunately I can't answer your question.
