i just got an abu garcia inshore series low profile reel and want to know it all the stuff it says about it is true including: the 23 Lbs of drag and durability. I have read good comments reviews and bad reviews about this reel. any feedback would be appreciated. thanks

no way 23# out of the box, more like ~9-10. its prone to corrosion more than similar reels. very similar to the penn sargus, all of which built in korea, presumably in the same factory. i like mine ok.

well i have a revo inshore and it casts like no other
i have casted it many times and have never gotten a birds nest. then i go cast with a larger reel and i suddenly look down to a nice birds nest
it casts amazing and i have caught some real nice calicos on it

fishman27 thanks for the encouraging news. i am worrying about this reel because i dumped a lot of money into this reel and i want it to perform like they said it would. fishman27 how was the drag on the reel was it pretty powerful like the specs say?
