I just got one of these, the RVO 600, This is the exact reel as the Roddy by Penn baitcaster. Man talk about a piece of junk. I threw it in the garbage can at one point then dug it back out a couple hours later. I am going to have to cut the levelwind off because it sticks really bad and jams the reel. What a waste. I normally use the Penn International baitcasters and the Garcia 6500. I figured I would try a cheaper reel this year to see how it would work, big mistake. I guess it's the old saying, "If it aint broke don't fix it" Looks like I will be saving my change to get a new Penn.
