The drag is super smooth and amazing.

The difference between this reel and my cheaper reels is night and day... you can feel the quality of this product.

The 600LC will be good for halibut, rockfish and cod, etc. at these depths also.

Unsure about spending the extra dollars for this reel over other brands for landlocked stripe bass. Great reel. I now own three and will only purchase Tekota for trolling and downrods in future. The anti-reverse bearing and line counters never sticking separates this reel form the rest.

I bought this reel for salmon fishing, the counter helps me maintain a consistent distance behind my down rigger ball. It's very nice and smooth and I like the fresh water clean out port located on the line counter.
Very good design.

I recommend this reel to anyone for easy retrieval of heavy bottom fish. With the counter on this reel you know at what depth you are fishing.

First a word regarding "just" four stars. The only reason I probably haven't awarded 5 stars is that we haven't put line on or started using the reels. My wife and I probably have close to 15 various spinning and casting reels and the two Tekota 600LC's represent the continuing purchase of exclusively Shimano reels. We often have visitors from out of state come to fish and stay with us in AK. I'm always glad to put Shimano's in their hands, regardless of their skill because I know it is highly unlikely that any fishing problems will be the result of their equipment. Though my brother-in-law complains it's the equipment that keeps him from catching those Kenai reds (sockeye). Roger, bro', technique, technique, technique. We love our Calcutta's, Stradic's and Symeter's

The Amazon experience was its typical no-drama follow through. Excellent price after much comparison and the free shipping is a sweet note for Alaskan's as we are constantly gouged for outrageous shipping fees. Seems many vendors aren't keenly aware that Alaska actually is on the north american continent, as they like to refer to their shipping service. And, many steadfastly refuse to use USPS flat rate shipping to help keep consumers costs down and oh yeah, support one of the greatest institutions this country has ever known. The US Post Office.

These reels are of exceptional quality for their price. I have used several in action on guide boats fishing for salmon and bottopm fish in various saltwater venues in AK. If you are considering pairing these reels with rods you already own, be aware the reel feet are robust and may not fit typical salmon rods with overall reel seat lengths of around 4 3/8" and widths of 13/16".

Great reel. Very smooth action with an excellent drag system. The line counter makes getting to depth easy and quick.

The line counter is easy to reset and easy to read. Makes it easy to consistently get to the same depth when trolling. It is not going to be dead on accurate but it is consistent which is what counts. The "detached" level wind mechanism tends to stick on the cross bar so it works better than nothing but not as well as any other level wind reel I have used.

The switch from free spooling to retrieve is too quick to engage with any movement of the crank and makes it difficult to adjust the drag while trolling. I can work around this but it is still a pain at times. It is my least favorite reel but it is an excellent value at the price. My next reel was a Daiwa level wind which suits me better but it cost more as well.

I grew up using Abu Garcia products and was determined not to change. I finally had a guide explain to me that was why I was breaking off a bunch if fish. I now have 6 of these that are at least 4 years old. I use several different sizes for trolling and down lines. I have never had any issues and get almost everything in the boat.
