I gave it a 3 on cast ability because it's more for trolling than casting. However, it is a SOLID reel. I use Abu Garcia for my catfish rigs (6500 c3 on 7' Ugly Stiks) and they winch up catfish of any size, so I figured I'd try this one for trolling. If you buy Abu Garcia you can't go wrong.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I just got my hands on a few of these reels for the coming 2013 walleye tournament season, and I have to say, these things are solid and built to rock! The all metal construction makes these reels bulletproof, and high quality line counters make them extremely accurate and consistent. Compare this reel to another brand with the graphyte/plastic side plates and frames, and there is NO comparison! These reels are built to work!

Recently needed a new reel and decided to shop around.
Let me tell you being married for about a year and a 2 month old.....money is scarse and tighter than ever, but i gotta fish.....
So did a lot of research online and let me tell you for the price of the 55 and the performance just WOW.......
I dont know how they do it but i will never buy any other brand.
