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.
The following was not a fair review, I went fishing yesterday and found that my pole was damaged and was fraying the line. The line was not the problem!!!!! I am going to order a new spool and give an better review.
(I was excited to use the “black” 8lb test. I truly could not be more disappointed. I only fished with it for two hours. The line could not hold small white bass... and broke on several hook sets. I switched to my other pole with 6 lb test and all was fine. Maybe I just got a bum spool, but I wont take another chance.)
