5A FOREVER Classic
By James Hong
I have owned this series of reel since I was 6 years old, and I'm 31 now, they have not quit. I own 4 of these in different sizes. The 1000 is plenty for your average freshwater fish under 3 pounds. The 2000 feels almost exactly the same but has a slightly bigger spool, very close in weight, feel, and ability to reel in a fish. I use mine with 4 lb. test line, sometimes up to 6 lb. test if I expect to hook a carp or larger trout. Pairs extremely well with Sufix line, and an ultralight action rod to light action rod.

Rear drag is convenient so you're not sticking your fingers in screaming line trying to tighten drag, and the quickfire II system makes casting a breeze. I love how this reel always resets with the Quickfire trigger ready for casting. Not many brands have this feature and it makes for some very easy and precise casting.

Total number of fish caught on these reels in 25 years probably over a thousand by now, with an average of a dozen or more fish per outing. This reel has handled small panfish to 4 lb trout and every bass size in between with ease. Corrosion will set in if you don't rinse them after exposure to salty water, but they still function even if they're not pretty.

In short: perfection.

5Excelent Quality
By Wolf
Very smooth action and built sturdy. I had one of these on a pole for 20 years before the pole was lost. An excellent quality reel for the price. Only drawback I see is that is does not hold as much line as others, but it still holds more than enough to be fully functional. Composite construction is strong, lightweight, and does not rust or corrode.
