Rated 4 out of 5 by tblackley Wanted a low cost large radius reel
I bought this reel because of the cost and features for my 4wt rod.
The quality looked good but the thickness was larger than I expected. The real was wider and the hub stuck our further than I was expecting.
But, when I used the reel, I was not effected by the width and I noticed that the reel was very smooth on both the drag and makeup. So much so that I noticed it right away. Very nice.
For the cost I think this is a very nice reel and I'm glad to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flyfshnbum great for price
I bought it as a spare for a 7 wt for fishing small salt water canals and creeks. Works as well as some more expensive reels,The large arbor, good drag and light weight make it a pleasure to fish, never got into the backing but the drag worked well enough to slow down some medium size jacks (12"-14"). I've used it about a dozen times with no problems. No wobble in the spool and start up inertia is very smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckwllms66 Great value
I purchased this reel in Dec 2014. I have landed 25-30 trout since I started using it. All of these fish were between 10-22 inches. It has worked flawlessly. It has many of the features of much higher priced reels at a lower price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyFishingRick Great reel!
My Quest #2 came with the Quest II outfit I purchased some months ago. I have been using it since May; more than a dozen times. It has been subjected to sand, gravel, submersion...All the abuses of typical fly fishing. Cleaned it just a couple times and it still functions as if new. I really like the smooth operation, simple drag system, just easy care and maintenance. For the fishing I do, I don't see a need for a different reel. Will be acquiring a space spool for sinking line for use with this reel.

This reel is beyond what I expected for the price! It has no slop, the drag is super smooth and it reels super straight and quiet. No wobbles in the spool when reeling. Outstanding value! Outstanding!
