I've played with some of them out at the store and they seem to be a decent reel for the money. Don't think you can go wrong with $30 or $20 on sale.

been fishing one for a few weeks now, seems to be a nice reel for the money. drag was a little sticky at first but it seems to have worn in now. I fish a 4 wt reel on a 5 wt rod with an 5wt intermediate sinking line and 50 yards of backing. So far the reel has been pretty solid.

The only problem might be that Cabela's is always changing their reel designs, so if you think you might need an extra spool, buy one when you buy the reel.

The only other problem is that you better know who the actual manufacturer is in case you ever need replacement parts. Cabela's will not tell you.

There are no extra reels for it, but for the price get a couple (just in case).
