I went to them instead of the full size bait casters because they have the line winder and are less bulky. G-50000 work perfect in my racks!!!!!!!!!

Was looking at getting a few for my rigs. Was wandering if they were any good also?

I have 8 of them that I've been using, but I'm ready to swap them out for a full-size low profile baitcaster. I just like a faster retrieve, and think the rod feels better in my hand with a larger reel.

Check these out...I'm going to give them a try: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-Pro-Guide174-Casting-Reel/1311150.uts?WTz_l=SBC%3BMMcat104793480%3Bcat104760 180%3Bcat104259780

Decent price for a full size...if I don't like them, I'll just return them.

I've got several, but only use them on 9, 10 & 11ft jigging rods.
Use them fishing in shallow to 15 FOW. May want to watch youtube
video by Kevin Rogers and his dad. Good for the way we fish.

Thanks for the information I guess I will go with the Shimano IX 1000 or 2000 spinning reel.
