This is an incredibly smooth reel. Looks great and functions flawlessly. Haven't got to fish it yet, but I've been fly fishing for 25 years and this thing is smooth. And Sierra's price was incredible. For a freshwater reel for trout and smallmouth, this reel can't be beat. There is no "jerk" when pulling line off. It just starts. Did I say smooth? It is smooth. Replaced an Orvis Battenkill and there is no comparison. And I got it for about the same money as the battenkill cost me a long time ago. Don't hesitate, buy this reel. And made in the USA to boot.
