THIS REEL IS GOOD. IT'S THE U.S. REEL LIGHT WEIGHT WIDE DIAMETER SPOOL, SUPER CASTER 240SX ALUMINUM BODY SPINNING REEL. With these reel I can put up to 30lb test braid line. The braid line i'm using is the new 30LB SUFIX 832 ADVANCED SUPERLINE GORE PERFORMANCE FIBERS LINE. I believe this is the best line for 2011, I think. With this braid line I can cast very far, which is great. The line comes in from 150yds or 300yds spool that you probably can get at any fishing store. When putting the line on the spool, leave about 1/8 of an inch from the end of the spool, which should be fine.  With up to 30lb test braid line, you can get up to 188 yards on this reel, which is plenty. I only use this reel mainly for casting lures most of the time, but you can also use it for bait as well, if you like. I like this reel very much. I just go it last month, and so far it is working ok. It's got a aluminum body which is good far salt water use, plus with 4 stainless steel abec 1 bearings, and reel weight is only 9.9 ounces, which is great for casting all the time.  SO GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY FISHING
