    I haven't seen that one, but i have the pinnacle alyssa 35r, and it is one of the smoothest reels, I've ever used. It also has the anti-line twist on the bail. The pinnacles are pretty sharp lookin too.

    C'Mon Gator. You may not use or even like spinning reels much but you have to give yourself credit for more than a 5 foot cast. :D Abu

    I'm with you gator, I have never been able to use spin casters either. I grew up using baitcasters and you have to throw them out. Spinners, you just toss them, throwing a spinner makes for really short casts and I could never learn to just toss it. So long live BAITCASTERS.

    I have a Pinnacle I got from Academy for $70... a Pro-X metal I think it is.. 10 bearings, all aluminum frame,etc. Great reel. I have a Lucille also.. I got it for it's looks but it's solid performer also.. much nicer than Curados and cheaper.. $65.. I also used to have one that I know Academy sells for $44.95.. I think it was PLS600.. maybe PCS600.. but something along those lines.. with the exception of the graphite frame, it was a great reel.. 10 bearings,6:3:1 ratio.. if you ignored the fact that it was less than $50, it performed every bit as well as $100+ baitcasters.. maybe the bearings are a cheaper grade, but having 10 still made a difference and I know they were a lot nicer than Curados,Citicas.. on a bad note, this reel is light gold and has a bit of real shiny gold above the spool for flash.. this shiny gold flaked off after a month...
