Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very happy with this reel. Love the weight and the feel. It is a fine piece of engineering. The size of the arbor makes for smooth handling. I gave this a 4 rather than a 5 only because I found a slight dead spot sometimes when pulling line off the reel during a cast. Depending on angle of your hand to the reel can cause a little friction, especially if the line is in the corner of the spool. The shape of the bridge between the reel and the spool has sharper angles on the metal than I like. I ran some fine sandpaper over the edge to smooth it out and was good to go. Simple fix, worth the effort.
