    I bought one of these reels for my carp/catfish setup and I am very pleased with it. It's a baitrunner reel with 7 ball-bearings, and the SR4507 model will hold 180 yds of 20# line. Very smooth reel, casts nicely, the baitrunner drag is smooth as silk, and it looks sharp. Balances out real nice on my 9 foot TICA rod.

    Before a few weeks ago, I have never heard of this brand, but I am pleasantly surprised with it. I gave $68 for it new. Just throwing this out there for you guys as a less expensive alternative to the Shimano baitrunners.

    TICA makes extremely nice equipment, always with a decent price tag too. I've been thinking about the Sportera myself.....
