Default US Reel supercaster

Does anyone have any experience with this reel US Reel 230XL SuperCaster Spinning Reel? I am considering getting one just to increase my casting range. I plan on matching it with a rod that has a large first eye. I can pick up a new reel for a very reasonable price.

I have three. 2 240xl's and a 230xl. i love them. they cast far, hold a lot of line just in case. the drags are really smooth, the reels operate smoothly. on my 230 the drag wasnt so great, had to break it in. not sure if the washers were rough or what but after a couple fish it smoothed out. my 240's were great out of the box. they get smoother the more you use them. i know thereare some people on here that dont like us reels, but i have had great luck with mine. i have caught a lot of big fish on my 240's including bull reds last winter. i do a lot of fishing so i needed something that was going to hold up. there are other reels out there that im sure are smoother but the amount of line thatthese reelshold got me. it opens up your range of fishing, as in one reel can handle it all. a warning though, when im casting luresas soon as i start my retrieve if you dont kinda fether the line with your finger it will tend to wrap around the drag knob. the best advice i can give you about this is to just to be aware of it. im sure there are better reels around the same price but i wanted something new and differant. again the amount of line it holds is amazing and they come with arbors in case you dont want to fill it all the way up.

I was about to buy one after using a buddies a few months ago, but I sure am glad I didn't. His main gear went out after using it for about 6 months. He took it back and traded it for a new Shimano Saros and it is a sweet reel, and casts just as well as the Supercaster did.

I have (2) 240sx's, (1) 230sx, and (2) 180sx's. All of mine have handled large fish really well. The drag system is tough. I use them in salt and fresh water. I started using the arbors (inserts) as they seem to cast better with them and if I need 300 or more yards to even think of landing a monster, I'm probably over matched anyway. The reel itself is durable. I have high dollar shimanos that have bale arms that bend after time. I'm careful with my reels so I do not know how that's occuring.

That wave spin or whatever it is intrigues me. I'd like to try one.
