    I bought two of these reels during the bogo offer in different retrieval rates, the slower retrieval actual casts better and is quieter but both reels feel great and an excellent job.

    Nice Reel - Awesome Feel to it

    Published by Jeremy Turner on 17th Jan 2020

    Disclaimer, I have not actually fished with this yet. I got it after our fishing season ended. However, I have practiced with it and it feels outstanding. It is very smooth. I cannot wait to take it fishing in the spring. If something changes regarding my review; I will update or add another one.

    Crius series baitcasting reel

    Published by Nick Tjaden on 15th Jan 2020

    Very light, low profile reel that fits my hand like a glove. Coupled with my lykan rod this combo is just an extension of my arm as I cast or set the hook. I bought the 8:1 gear ratio and I love it for picking up slack line while jerking or flipping heavy cover. The big handle makes cranking em in a breeze. Fish all day and not have a worn out hand from reeling! My only regret is not buying 10 of them.

    Just order on the bogo deal, its pretty cold up here in Chicago so I haven’t been able to use yet. But look great and feel great. Good item quality too you can tell it’s not cheap like other brands. So far I’ve ordered three reels and 2 poles and can’t wait to add more to my collection!
