To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve been using the 2000 version paired with a light ugly stik for fishing my local river. Been catching a lot of perch, largemouth (2-3lbs), and even some stripers! Paired it with some 6lb braid. No issues yet. I’m impressed with the quality of this reel at the price point. I’m beating this thing up daily and it still works fine. I even caught a 10+ lb carp on this thing by accident, but had to baby it in.
I’d recommend this for sure, but can’t speak to long-term usage. It does seem a little flimsy sometimes.
