Overall this spinning reel from Yoshikawa has received mainly positive reviews. One consumer did mention that he wished the reel made a little more noise when a fish is one the line. While this would be convenient it does not affect the reel’s performance capabilities.



In depth information



This spinning reel is built to last through years of fishing trips. Every part of the reel is resistant to corrosion so you can use it for catching fresh and saltwater bass. The spool is constructed from anodized aluminum so it is lightweight, durable and rust resistant, and it is protected by the sturdy graphite sideplate. The reel also comes with stainless steel ball bearings and a sturdy aluminum handle.


One of the reasons this spinning reel is a popular choice with anglers is it versatile design. Not only is it great for bass fishing in the surf or freshwater, but it can also be used for carp fishing or as a baitcasting reel. There is very little you can’t catch with this spinning reel. Adding to its versatility is the adjustable handle. It can be attached to either side of the reel so it can be comfortably used by right and left hand anglers. You can also find this reel in 4 sizes so you can easily find the perfect one to meet your needs.


Performance and Power

You will never have to worry about power or performance. The reel is designed to make a slight “clicking” sound when the line is going out or coming back in so you can be confident in your casts and retrievals. Thanks to the 10 ball bearings you can enjoy a reliably smooth performance every time you use this spinning reel. It also comes with one anti reverse bearing so you can securely set your hook when you feel a tug on your line.

The multiple gear system helps to ensure you have the power you need to smoothly crank the line back in. The high gear ratio on all the models will give you a secure and fast retrieval without causing a lot of exhaustion. What really sets this reel apart is its powerful drag system. It has front and rear drag so you can easily use it as a bait feeder.
