Has anyone ever used this reel? Is it good and will it last?
Ive looked at them and actually held one at the store...IMO they look and feel cheap...they do spin well and would probably cast well but I wouldnt want to hook up with a 30lb fish with one
I have been using a 20L and 30L each for a couple of years. They are a good buy for the price. They are harder to learn to cast with than say the Abu 6000. I have not had anything break. With the 4.? gear ratio you could reel in the kitchen sink. I use mine more for fishing straight down in deep water and for carp fishing. They make a good backup reel. I bought two new reels Friday spent my money on Abu 6500C3 at Academy $79 with a $10 mail in rebait.
I've got 2 of them... I used them every weekend last year and caught cats up to and including my PB on them 44 lb flathead... You can't beat them for the price... I gave away a Abu 5000 and 6000 because I didn't like them.. When I upgrade it will be Penn's.. But until then I'll use the Tidewaters..
ive got three of them as for them lasting i dont know they seem to be good reels for the money as of last week i reeled 144 lb of fish in about 2 1/2 hours all with the tide water 30l there all right in my book
I have the Tidewater Freeliner Spinning Reel, its a good reel for the money.
