Not sure why we would need to know how to spool this reel... Kind of a waste of time to watch. That being said, I know this reel has gotten crapped on by a lot of people. I have one and have had no issues with it at all. It may even be my favorite reel to throw. I have none of the noise or other issues that "reviewers" have been having. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe there was a bad batch.

The only thing I don't like about the reel is that it doesn't have a dual braking system. Not a huge deal as I think the centrifugal brakes perform really well, it's just nice to have an adjustment on the outside of the reel casing, especially for a $200 reel.

yeah, i was going to spool it up anyway and just figured i'd film it for newbies. i've been using the inception a lot and love it, have a feeling i'm going to like the concept z even more but i want a faster reel for lefties.

I like the z that I purchased, especially for lighter and weightless baits. Smooth, quiet, drag is excellent, I like the color. Overall I likey.

I purchased one last week, took it home started casting and five minutes later the handle knob was in the middle of the road.. screwed it back in tight as it would go and it was still wiggling around a bit.. fell off again after a few minutes. I was already on the fence about getting the reel and that kind of made up my mind that it needed to go back. It was a smooth and quiet reel, but I didn't see much of a difference between it and my Curado 200e. I'm going to save $20 and get the Curado K since I know those reels are good quality.
