This is the best reel out there for the $$$. I bought the 300 spooled with SA 3 wgt. Have caught 2 6lb Rainbows in the short time I have had. Running 4X tippet. The drag system is butter. Was able to crank down on the drag to shorten the fight and it was amazing how smooth and quiet it was. Pair it with a TFO rod and you don’t need anything else. Totally satisfied.
