THOSE are the best reels made. As stated above, it is a WORK HORSE of a reel and I still have 14 of them, all on CB and SB rods. Little maintenance given to it and it reels and casts all day. My BEST rod I have owned, but I have tried the newer ones, but still go back to my old tried and true reels. Handles all kinds of CBs you throw at it, even the Strike King 25. Keep it clean and it should last a long time. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
