Folks something else for you to consider as a starter Reel Is Lews reels they start at approx $59.00 but I would suggest the $79.99 one due to it's setting ability! I now own 3 Lews Reels! 1- $79.99 and 2 of the Higher priced ones and they are very easy to set-up and are very smooth casting! I further admidt I like them better than my Revo's as they cast better and once set up Backlashes (Professional Over Runs) at least for me are a thing of the past!( Go Figure) and they have a good selection of Left Retreive reels also!
