Comments about Cardiff 400A Baitcasting Reel, 50/305,65/180,80/160 Yards/Test, 5.2:1 Gear Ratio, 4BB, 11lb. Max Drag, 11.9 oz:

Use this reel for fishing the bays and local hot spots. The Cardiff feels good in the hand, it's balanced and casts long. I pared up with a med/heavy Crucial this is a deadly combo. No complaints here.
