Pros: Powerful

My dad bought this reel over 20 years ago when I was about 8 or 9 in 1989, 90 or so.  He caught countless fluke, blues and stripers with this reel every summer up to 8 years ago.  It was sitting in a cabinet in their kitchen until last summer when I saw it.  I broke the reel down, cleaned and regreased and started fishing with it myself and it still works just as good as the day it was bought.  Everything in and outside the reel are original except the side plate decal and did not need to be replaced, even the grease was original.  I caught a few decent fluke, a couple nice size blues and two big skate with it and the reel didn't skip a beat.
