    I have one I bought several years ago off ebay. Wish I didn't, it has a bent worm gear and I don't know where to get replacement parts.

    So you wouldn't recomend this reel? I was looking up Penn reels and got a google hit that this one was compariable. But then I got to looking and it says comparable in size.

    I have handled those reels in my local baitshop, they are not even close to being compared to a Penn reel. I would save your money and get somthing else.

    Right, I would not recommend them, they are no where near the quality of Penn. I love my Penn 220 GTOs.

    Might consider a Dawia. I have a 900h and it's awesome

    a fishing buddy of mine has 4 of these reels. They are really not that bad. The drag is OK, decent line capacity, you are just not getting the bullet-proofness of a Penn.
