so i bought my first new reel in years the other day a penn sg4000 and spooled it with 20# braid and discovered it has a feature called infinite anti reverse and just fell in love with it. i already owned a 430 and took it (even though i just had it spooled with a 150 spool of power pro) and a fairley nice combo with a 302 wich i had the penn washers and manual bail installed on and sold them both to replace the 430 with an sg3000. i havent even fished with one yet and i just cant say enough about them. any way just wanted to let anyone that may be looking for a reel that for 75.00 you cant go wrong. outcast has it for 5.oo less than bass pro and thats before shipping.

hey snaggedline thanx for coming by. yeah it was nice but there was a reason thatit was only 30.00 with a brand new spool of 10 lb power pro. it was a very old model with three bearings (the new ones have five) and did you notice how for it would slip before it would catch? like an inch and a half at least! also i have had major problems with braid wrapping around the little chrome spool release button and if i didnt notice it immediately after about 5 rotations i was in amess that could only be corrected by cutting the line. lost a lot of line that way.they shouldnt use the spool release button on the small models until maybe the 5500 or 6500 i dont think it would be a problem with a larger diameter line. didnt pick up aqny dvds?
