View Full Version : Thumbs up for this reel

I know there have been numerous threads addressing reels I should've posted on at the time but didn't think of it at the time. I bought a Shakespear Catera
spinning reel 1 yr ago at BPS. I think I paid $19.99 on sale. Had both spools it comes with loaded with Trilene XL 4 lb. Have it on a 6'6" light action rod. Well for what it's worth I have fished it enough in the last year to say that it is one of the nicest operating and feeling reels I have ever had. And trouble-free
in every way. You can load this reels' spool to the shoulders and no loops and
rats nests, casts a country mile. Have a couple nice Penns that I paid a fair amount for and a Quantum that was in the same $ range as this one that are nice but this reel shines next to them.

I picked one of those up some time ago and was amazed too. Normally I don't care for Shakespeare but for the price its a quality reel.
