I have been wanting this reel for awhile so when I found it was available on Amazon, I snapped it up. 7 days later it arrives here in Australia. I spooled it up with 4lb braid and next day took it to a local lake. Flicked in a lure and felt it get hammered. Ended up pulling out a 40cm tilapia. The little C-10 handled the fish with ease. Absolutely no trouble at all. I already have the Ceymar C-25 so I knew the C-10 would be a good reel but it pretty much exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend this reel for anyone wanting an affordable quality ultralight reel. You can’t go wrong.
