Rating: $100 reel for $60!
Reviewed on January 27, 2012 by Kevin from Gray Hawk, Ky
Wasn't looking for a reel when i bought this one, but I saw a $60 price tag on Shimano and never thought twice when I bought it. Figured I'd use it as a spare in case one of my main reels died for some reason. I put a 3/8oz Strike King spinnerbait on it and just carried it with me when I went fishing. I put my Caenen down one day just to see how the Callisto casted. Didn't get the distance my other reels have, but I didn't expect to either. Caught a 5lb 12oz largemouth on the first cast and for a $60 reel it has a great drag!!!! Don't know about everybody else but the drag is what sells a reel to me. This reel could be priced at $100 and it would be worth it to me!

I have used this reel for two season's and have caught many a bass, pike, walleye,etc.. The learning curve is worth it. I don't use spinning gear anymore.
Rating: Excellent Reel!

This is an excellent baitcaster for any price range! All it takes is a few adjustments and backlashes are few and far in between! For the price you can't beat it, and the performance is spectacular! This is my second Shimano baitcaster, and I am sure won't be my last.
