    hay john the free spool on this reel blew me away,you spin the spool and it spins for ever,better than any reel i have ever had.do they backlash very bad?i think it might take me alittle while to get the hang of it but i think i will like it.

    John, You just have to adjust the free spool on reel just like you would on an Abu the knob on the right side of the reel by the handle.Adjust the tention on the spool there ok. You will be able to cast that sucker a Country Mile if You choose to.J.D.:0a26:
