The Rhino has worked harder, has a better drag button (the knob on both my Omegas' is loose, this has been a problem with them) and feels smoother than my Omegas which cost twice as much. Now that I no longer use spincast as I've moved on to baitcast the reel I gave my wife who wants to start fishing the Rhino. It is much lighter and easier to work. Having owned two Omegas I think I can safely say I it is no fluke the Rhino I got is better. On paper the Omega should smoke the Rhino - in usage the Rhino wins out. It is just a great reel and will last forever. Don't use in saltwater!
My Omgeas are reel wall decorations compared to the Rhino which gets used.
I will say however that yes, the reel is tightly threaded. Make sure you get in on straight or you could strip it. I have also had a friend that on my recommendation bought two Rhino's - an RSC2 and RSC3. The RSC2 model which I have never used failed right out of the box. The replacement RSC2 lasted about 1 month of hard fishing before it started locking up on the cast. He traded for another RSC3 and has not had any problems for about a year now. Make sure you get a good RSC3 and it will last you a long time.
(1) The cap for the reel is so finely threaded that it easily cross threads. Taking off the cap to rethread line becomes a major hassle.
(2) The line release button is covered by a rubber boot. This can hinder casting.
(3) This was the first reel where I've actually had a part break internally. Part of the bait alert system (useless btw) broke and jammed my entire reel. I had to call off my fishing trip in order to go home and work on the reel.
(4) Constant tension must be kept on the line in order for the line pickups to work (and subsequently be able to actually reel in your line). This is especially true if you use the stock line that comes pre-spooled.
In conclusion, this is a finicky reel that must be kept clean and maintained. It can't just be kept in your garage for the occasional usage, unless you are prepared to work on your reel for half the fishing trip.
changed line twice to get rid of line twists, used good line .trilene. the line can be pulled out and handles turn even after you have reeled in a few feet. absolutly no drag. you just can not use this reel. We use zebco 33 and have a great time.
