I had a Ugly Stick medium rod laying around so i thought id buy a new reel for it to use as a bait catcher and whatnot. I got a Rhino RSC3 which is pre-spooled with 12lb line, $25.00. It casts very well and is very smooth, nice drag adjust and line alert. Very sturdy and gets the job done really nicely with no effort. Id like to try the larger one with 20lb line sometime.
