Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom Cook from Caught 80 lb, 75 lb and 65 lb spoonbill on it. It ripped the gears out of a 7,000 Garcia, but this one big water took all this abuse I and these fish gave it I'm retired and fish looking to go pro fishing a tournament the first of June just bought a second big water and need a third my whole setup was shakespeare. Going for large flat head in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zach0020 from Good for Price I used this reel paired with a Berkley Big Game series rod and 50lb braid to fish with in the gulf, had no problem with 35-40lb redfish, 15lb gag grouper, and even a 4ft shark. Very nice for the price, and even if it does fail, it's $20, that's nothing in big game fishing standards.

Rated 3 out of 5 by eyehunter from Not Bad at all This is a very basic reel, reel is fairly smooth and the drag is quite smooth. This Reel does not have instant anti reverse and only has one lock up anti reverse spot making some hook sets difficult. overall a good value for occasional use

Rated 1 out of 5 by Djsnyc from Broke immediately I bought the Alpha 60 as a surfcasting combo with a 9' rod. It was about $25 total. After a few days of casual casting from the beach (maybe 200 casts), the Anti-reverse broke. It had gotten dunked a few times, but I rinsed it thoroughly with fresh water each day. I opened the reel and a piece of broken plastic fell out. It would cost more in postage to return it to Shakespeare than a new one would cost. The rod is great. I bought a new reel to replace this one. But WOW did it break fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ScubaB from ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE This reel came on a combo set that i bought the first reel stripped out and I took it back and got a new one. After returning it the second was just as bad as the first. I know you get what you pay for but this is well below par. This product has turned me against any of your other products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terry123 from The drag on the reel malfunctions after using it twice. read this was common problem. The reel spins with the drag until it locks up.
