I used one tonight at our clubs casting instruction. No fish on the drag, but for stripping line to cast I was impressed. I even mentioned it to our lead instructor. Sounds like you got a heck of a deal too.

I have one that I put on an old rod that I let beginners learn with when I take them fishing. I also use it when I go fishing and I know there will be ice on the guides and I don't want to ruin any of my good sharkskins with pieces of ice scraping them. They're fine although you got the 4, so I'm not sure what species of fish you're targeting. For trout that aren't going to test your drag too much, it's a fine, if not a little heavy, line holder. If you want to know about how it will handle a salmon or how it would perform in the salt...uhhhhh, that may be a little different.

ETA: I'm a huge Ross supporter, also. All of my reels are Ross except for 2 Bauers(salt reels). It is a good reel and you got a good deal. That being said, I wonder how the drag will handle a fish that will take you into the backing. If you're using it for bass or somthing, then it will be fine. If you're using it for a more powerful fish, all I can really say is, I don't know.
