I have seen them at BPS and I have thought about getting one but I don't know anything about them. They look cool though.

Interesting idea, but I'd still prefer a good Daiwa or Shimano.

I bought one last spring after getting fed up with bird nests. I don't know if the bird nests are caused by line or reels or both. I spooled Cajun red line on it (which I had never used before) and have had only a couple of times where a loop formed under line reeled in. Those few loops that did form did not create a problem on the next cast, the reel seems to work as advertised. I am very happy with the performance of the reel, however, I ordered mine off the internet without having seen one except for pictures. The reel body and some other parts are made of plastic, which kind of disappointed me, but it seems to be really tough plastic and I don't think it will be a problem. The other thing I wish I had known was what the physical sizes of the reels actually were. For crappie fishing I think I would have preferred the smallest size. I ordered the middle sized reel.
