Does anyone have any experience with these reels? I see them online and they look great from the schematics and drag system. I've never heard of them and am very curious on how well they perform in the real world scenarios.
I see smaller jigging reels, bigger chunking type reels, and the spinning reels.
i'm very intrigued but hate to get out there in the middle of the big blue and have failures if they aren't up to par.
