First look - impressive as far as professionalism and smoothness. Check video.
I got a chance to take it out tonight and had the pleasure of a nice bass :)
The reel is impeccable. Very good casting (I also have new braid on it), extremely smooth retrieving and also smooth drag (on a bass around 2 pounds). I put on it 125 yards of 15 pound braid and there was room for more (I'll probably take it off and put some more mono underneath).
Being from the mountains of Romania, I am used to small reels for trout and tonight I was considering replacing this one with a 2000 series but, by the end of the evening, I decided it's small enough to keep.
Overall, great buy!
Hope this helps you decide whether to buy one or not :)
On to their customer service: The handle on my reel accidentally came lose and fell into the ocean. I contacted Customer Support and they responded immediately and sent me a brand new handle. I like that they stand behind their product and responded in a timely manner. Well done!
I am using this reel in saltwater in the southeast Louisiana coastal marshes. I finally had a chance to do a little fishing with it and this review is subject to change after more hours are put on the reel. the fit and finish are very nice on the reel for this price range. it looks more expensive than what it is in the finish department. I do not care for the fact that the body is graphite as I would have preferred cast metal but consider the price range. I used this reel for the first time for three days of fishing and caught only speckled trout so I did not have a chance to see how the reel would hold up fighting something heavier like redfish and testing the drag system as well. it did not give me any issues on this initial 3 day trip. the reel operated smoothly and retrieved and spooled the line just like it should have. On the first 3000 I received, the screw that holds the handle secured from the opposite side was stripped and would not tighten down properly so I contacted the seller and it was replaced with one that did not have these same issues........
Let me take a minute here to discuss the customer service form pisfun................
This has to be THE BEST customer service experience I have ever had. While there was a small bit of delay in the email exchange due to them being in China I presume the response was outstanding. They truly did send me out a new reel no questions asked when I explained to them the problem I was having. The lady I spoke to was very kind, and very helpful, and handled everything in a quick smooth matter. My new 3000 while arriving from china actually came quicker than I had expected. My point here is if you want to gamble and try one of these reels out they really did stand by their warranty/guarantee in my experience.
So back to the reel. One thing I did not care for was the little bit of back slack in the anti-reverse. In other words if you reel and stop it will have a slight bit of back travel or click before it completely stops. you will often notice this on cheap entry level reels as opposed to higher quality reels. However, when the reel was spooled, mounted, and fished with, this was hardly noticeable anymore at least to where it did not bother me nor did it catch my attention. I usually fish with a PENN battle 2 which is outstanding and quickly pick up on things like this with cheaper reels. I really need to put more time on this reel to see what problems will develop then I will adjust this review accordingly. usually on cheaper reels I will start to notice a gritty or binding feeling when reeling in especially after a large fish has run some of the drag out. I will be looking for this here as well. also after using in saltwater for some time it tens to have a gritty feel and loses it's smoothness when reeling in. if I experience these issues I will update.
so to sum it up, do not expect a $100 reel here but let's see if it's not serviceable enough for people on a budget or as a loaner reel or a reel for kids that can actually land fish. So far my impression has been good for this price range. My 3000 cost 15.99 when I purchased it but it is now 16.99. I do not feel like I would really pay any higher for another as the price point is what convinced me to try it out. But perhaps long term it will hold up fine then I wouldn't mind a buck or two more. only time will tell. basically I am hoping it will be on par with the 23-29 dollar entry level specials that all the name brand makers sell, but for less money. BTW don't expect to gain too much info from the reviews until the numbers are up as there are a lot of phony reviews here placed by who knows? If you look at the bizarre names and lofty claims made about the reel along with the incorrect nomenclature that real fisherman would never use, then the phony reviews are easy to spot. I am trying to give an honest assessment to people who really fish by someone who really fishes to see if this cheap reel might be a good or bad choice for you.
####################### UPDATE#################### 8/2/2016
I finally had a chance to take the 3000 series reel on a couple of trips where I put it to much use. Again, fishing saltwater coastal marshes in southeast La and species caught was speckled trout......or spotted sea trout to you Yankees :) So here is my best guess at reviewing this reel for people who are wondering. The reel certainly did it's job, and it did not give me any problems. But I think what you mostly notice about it when you really get into catching a lot of fish is there are choices out there that cost a little more, but the functioning of the reel is so much smoother than a much cheaper reel like this. Let me explain. It is not uncommon here this time of year to catch 40 trout per person to have a few keepers as there are so many undersized fish in the mix. So on a really good trip such as the last two I am using this reel constantly and landing fish only to release 90% of them right back in the water. The point is, the reel gets a serious workout. I wont remove any stars because it functioned fine and gave me no problems but the reel just isn't as smooth as my penn reels or even my cheaper mitchells that the kids fish with. I did not land any big reds these few trips, but I did have a few large sail cats and the drag system worked fine for those. My family fishes a lot. So much, that we know the difference between cheaper and better reels. I don't feel like I would want to use this reel all day long and on every trip. But, I am an experienced fisherman who goes often which is not the case for a lot of people. That's why, I will stay with my original rating and say this...I think this reel is perfectly fine for young kids who do not yet respect their gear, as a loaner reel for bringing people with you who do not possess their own gear, as a good back up reel as my buddy calls it who is a kayak fisherman that you do not fear if it falls overboard, or just anyone who needs a dependable reel but does not have a lot of money to spend. As I said, the reel functioned just fine it just doesn't feel like a 70-100 dollar reel. If you are a frequent fisherman, you will know what I mean. As an example, I went on Amazon 2 days ago and will replacing this 3000 series with a penn fierce 2500 for my sons pole because it was on sale for 46.99. This reel (pisfun) would do just fine for him, but he is becoming a more experienced fisherman so it is time for him to step up to higher quality but not the really expensive reels yet. But again, the pisfun is a great starter reel or for any of the above mentioned reasons. If you have the money and the experience, you would most likely opt for something more expensive. as of yet, the pisfun has given me no problems in it's function so I will keep the 4 star rating for reliability. I would maybe drop to 3 stars as far as describing the quality. I will need to use the reel longer in saltwater to see how it holds up in that respect, but I always rinse my gear with fresh water after every trip so I do not abuse my stuff.
