Any of yall know anything about this reel? Got one in cabelas bargain cave for less than $30 (originally 60). saying this has a loud clicker is a huge understatement. looks like all metal guts. can't wait to try it out.

I likey :)


I have 2 of them and only complaint i have is gear ratio. One day that ratio (slowww) is gonna stump me a fish I don't want stumped. Casts better than any I have and solid as can be.

I'm gonna guess he means that the fish will wrap his line around a stump before he can get the fish clear of said stump-field because he'll be taking in so little line due to the low gear ratio...  Gotta get them big ones out of the debris quick, unless you like the story of the one that got away!

i figured that's what he means. guess if one gets on there I'll have to walk backwards as fast as I can while reeling in. maybe I can conjure up some of those old football DB skills. haha

Never had a 9 but years ago buddy of mine used one to catch many double-digit redfish in Louisana bayous/swamps; swore by them.  Was given a well worn 109 from an estate sale and wore it out because had no diagram for opening, cleaning and oiling.  Worked very well.  Use one of my 209's drifting and it will winch the whaler upwind when I find a snag! Very rugged reels, but slow like said.

I've been catching fish with it and here's what I've found.. slowest reel ever. 3:1 ratio compare to my pats is almost half the speed. But it can crank in good fish with ease. Low gears = lots of torque I guess cause it was never an effort with fish in the teens (felt like small eaters). Wayyyy louder than anything else I own.

Pros: loud clicker, tough as nails, made in USA, inexpensive.
Cons: a little slower ratio, but strong.
Overall, not bad for the price.
I've got 4 Penns, PM me if interested

I'm curious to know how well those cast,Do they have a centrifical braking system in them? I just remember the first 2 baitcasters I had were a 209 and a 210 , & I dang near threw BOTH of them d@m thangs in the lake out of pure frustration !

working on setting the casting drag just right. backlashes more than my PAT's. I can cast the pats further too, but I think it's bc I'm used to is and have those dialed in. Plus I keep my thumb on the penn just a lil bit more bc of the backlashing.
