Re: Guideline products
I can speak to the general quality of the milling on their reels (it's damn good), but the spool release button on my reel is completely jammed and the spool is now permanently fixed to the reel. I'd read that this was a problem on the Watergrip reels, but I'm not a multiple spool guy so it doesn't bother me. The drag and one-way bearing are top notch as well, and feels nicer than a lot of the middle-range reels I've owned or played with at the shop (Orvis, etc.).
