I purchased the 4000 series and have really put it to the test with some big bull reds and black drums.

So far it has been a very good reel. So far it operates smoothly.

Good reel

Great reel for the price. No real complaints yet. My only reason I wouldnÂ’t purchase again is because I also purchased a few Pursuit 3 models and they are literally the exact same except the red coloring for roughly 40% the price. The red does look sharp though ?

Quality reel

Purchased a 6500 from a local shop for surf fishing. Used it pretty hard for over a year and its held up great. I do take care not to bang it around and I rinse it after use but it's been dunked and dropped in the sand, and has no problems dragging in some 80+lb rays and other smaller surf fish. I do recommend (for any reel) a deep cleaning every once in a while or if you suspect read more sand entering the gearbox.

The only minor issue I've come across is the bail sometimes snaps shut on a hard cast but you can prevent that. Once you open the bail and before you cast, spin the spool just until it wants to stop against the auto-bail-close mechanism. This prevents momentum from building up before u flick a hard cast.

Anyways this is a solid reel at this price point. If properly maintained I dont see why I couldn't get an easy 10+ years out of it.

Fierce III 1000

I purchased the Fierce III 1000 to use with a 5'-6" ultra light rod and to primarily fish from a kayak. It is light and smooth and the updated drag system is a great improvement over the Fierce II. This reel seems to be high quality, especially for the price. I highly recommend this reel for freshwater use, but don't know how it would hold up in salt.
