    Anyone use one of these reels? Good price and, from what I've seen, they cast well, have good line capacity...the 200 series holds 300 yd of 20 lb test.

    A tackle salesman I trust sold one to a guy to use on his 12 ft surf rod recently for fishing below a dam. He said it casts better than the equivalent Penn's. I played with it and it felt good, especially with a price tag of under $70.

    I don;t have a Shimano TR reel.I do have a Shimano Charter Special 2000 LD.It has a lever drag,level wind and holds 300 yards of 20 lb.mono.It seems to be a ideal large Catfish and saltwater reel.The lever drag lets you use it like the "Bait feeder"on spinning reels.I cain;t cast anymore because of my hands,but others tell me it "cast good."I love you brothers and sisters.peewee
