    Bought one of these out of nostalgia, and quickly realized that it's not nearly as cool as i thought.

    The handles are way too short. It's kinda like riding a circus bike. Most of the modern spinners have much longer handles that give you better balance and leverage.

    The Quickfire mechanism has a huge drawback. When you quickly need to set the hook, the rotor can spin as much as 360 degrees, so instead of a hookset, you get a merry-go-round ride that comes to an abrupt halt. Annoying.

    In terms of quality, I'm sure this reel is up there with the rest of the Shimano reels (i.e. solid).
