The machining is superb and the tolerances tight. This is a premium reel at a budget price with an excellent list of features--strong & smooth drag, nice matte silver finish (less flash for the fish to see), a large arbor with a curved belly to hold line and backing better, full ventilation to help you backing dry quickly, and lightweight yet strong. And it is even made in the USA, in Idaho. It performs well, and it has a fantastic warranty through Lamson.
