    What do you all think about them. Ever used them. It has a anti-backlash system on it.

    They didn't make them very long. They had alot of problems with them from what I heard. There's a company that makes an upgrade kit that you can send your reel in to make it work right, but it's expensive. I've never seen any anti-backlash system needed more than the spool adjustment on the sides of the endplate and my thumb.

    I haven't heard much about them. I would say that they are nice reels, though. Good luck with it, brother!!!!!!
