My fishing buddy got one for 35 bucks over the summer
He can't stop talking about.
Used it in FLA last month.....I think that it's his new best friend

(They're around $400 new)

I just need to know if it is a good quality reel. Is it worth $225? Like new condition loaded with line of decent quality. I like the looks of it and don't really need it but I think I WANT it.

If you're gearing up for fishing in AK. maybe we should talk.. 225 may be a good price when you are looking for this specific reel but if it is an impulse buy and you decide that you won't use it a lot you could have trouble reselling at the same price.

However, if you already have a rod that you are matching the reel to in order to build an outfit then it may be the only reel you'll need for salmon fishing here. I would be happy to chat with you if you want.

I have a rod for it and he came down some more on the price so I am going a head and get it. I just didnt figure I needed to reels for the 10-12 weight size. Its like having 2 rifles chambered for the same caliber
