Reviewed by Sparsegrayinghair from Wild Wonderful West Virginia on Friday, June 21, 2013When I'm using a 6wt. it's heavy streamer or popper stuff. Not a lot of skill just brute force. 2X or 3X tippet so I don't really care as long as it holds line. It's Ross' cheapest reel and it shows. But it gets the job done.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Matt O. from Birmingham, AL on Tuesday, March 6, 2012I wanted a cheap reel, so I picked this up. First inspection it looked great. After spooling it with backing and line, it was making a bad grinding noise when I used it. I took it apart and found the aluminum was slighty bent causing it to grind. I was able to straighten it up and stop the noise, but this reel is very flimsey. I could have gotten a much nicer reel for the same money elsewhere.
