With a bent drag star, and a bent handle design the reel itself is much more compact than last generation. It is very smooth to reel and feels good in my hands.
Other than that it is almost identical the the older models. Most of the innards are the same. same gear ratio, same magnetic brakes, same spool design, alot is the same.
It also feels ever so slightly cheap. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, but the outside looks a little plasticky kinda cheap feeling. the tension knob dosen't feel as....precise as the old model, the mag brakes don't seem as good as last years model eaither. One thing I really do miss though is the flipping switch of the older generation. Now only the new silver max will have it. But I can cast without it.
But overall I do like this reel. For 50$ you cant go wrong, and Abu Garcia manages to make quality products for cheap. I would definanly suggest this item as a first baitcaster, or a more expirienced fisherman looking for a cheap reel to round out thier collection. If it wasn't for those few small negatives this reel would be a 5/5. But overall this is a good, quality, cheap reel.
