I purchased the speed demon elite spinning reel...model was the 2500 I believe. I should have thrown my 100 dollars away . Reel is a joke. It's a toy. The drag is laughable. I put line on it....Made a couple of casts in my basement...I can't bring this crap out fishing with me. I would be laughed off the boat. It's going in the garbage because that's what it is. I purchased a 50$ Daiwa Regal 1000 and it is 200 times better. I had to buy another Daiwa rod and reel to replace my KastKing rod and reel..I wanted to like this stuff but I'm not happy.
Can’t change retrieving handle right/left it’s useless for me
No question this is one of the fastest spinning reels on the market today. Its extremely smooth and with over 17lbs of carbon fibre drag it is over engineered compared to what else is out there. This reel is flat out impressive!
This is a solid feeling reel. The build quality is fantastic. It has above average casting distance and the drag is smooooth. The 7.4:1 gear ratio definitely makes spinning techniques much more efficient!
I bought this reel and was very impressed. The retrieval speed is wickedly fast and the bearings are smoother than I have felt on my higher end reels. Just used it last night and landed a few bass, some large channel cats and some pan fish just to get a good feel for it. Worth every dime I paid. Great reel!
