There’s a reason I see so many of these reels. My fishing is river fishing, and it’s super tough on the gear. I don’t have the budget for expensive reels, but once I switched to the Presidents I realized I don’t have to spend tons of money on the quality required. They simply hold up for a long, long time.. And they hold up without compromising quality.. I have never NOT trusted this drag with a big fish on, I have never replaced a bail spring, and I have never had the gears clog up.. Don’t know how they make this quality at this price, this is definitely my favorite store to purchase from.
