Do you love big bluegill?

I'm considering importing this reel, and I'd like some opinions.

Very cool reel…

For me a reel of that nature would make a  great component to a dedicated vertical jigging setup.... or even icefishing... do you think there is any chance that there would be ice build up problem on the line guide up front?

That's what I keep hearing. For ice I wondering if the level wind would freeze up too easily. Since I live in Alabama I have no way to testing it in ice conditions. I do a lot of longline drifting and trolling. Free spooling the line out gets line out very quickly.

That's definitely a cool looking reel. Let us know how it works for you? Have you given it a good test yet?

Thanks! I'm still putting it through its paces. I've been casting with it, but haven't had much opportunity to fish with it.

I'm interested in it!

Looks like it would be great for vertically fishing jigs, but can you actually cast with it without backlashing it?

What price range would it be in?

I need to do a casting video of it. You have to feather it with your pinky just like our centerpin brethren. I have made some decent casts with it, but it isn't a megacaster. I'm seeing this reel for vertical jigging, spider rigging and longline trolling and drifting application. You can cat it in a pinch, but it's no spinning reel. Gonna try and shoot a video on this next week if the weather clears.

Than ks for your interest. I'm still trying to get a quote form the supplier in China. It's the Chinese New Year, it's like the Christmas Holidays for them. People are on vacation and stuff. As such I'm not wanting to give a price just yet.
