I admit it. I have had some Shimanos not many mostly lower priced ones. Had a customer service experience that left a carp taste in my mouth. Have not bought any since. Went fishing on the river and use bait casters for channel cats. Got there and alas the one I had was not working good. Got this one spendy at $250 not what I would normally buy not many places carry left hand. All I can say is maybe more money is worth it? Never had a bait caster cast so smooth. The first cast went easily 25 feet more than my usual reels. My bride who is not much of a bait cast fan stole it from me. I might get it back. Have owned many brands mostly Daiwa Tatulas very good as well but not even close to this one. Except for my first Ice fishing locator nothing has ever come this close to really impressing me. Just thought I would eat crow and share.
