These are great moving water reels. By that I mean creeks/streams and rivers. The 4:1 gear ratio is excellent for spoon and spinner retrieval in moving water. I find it a little slow for ponds and lakes, but it just requires a little more speed on my part to get the proper action from lures in still waters. As they are at 4:1, so long as you choose the proper weight of lure for your water, it's very comfortable to get spinners like panther martins running as intended or to get the right action on a spoon like a krocodile etc.
The drag control being on the bottom of these reels adds to the length/size of them, but it's also conducive to good balance. I suppose some of it depends on the rod you choose, but I have this 1000 paired with a 4 piece 5' ugly stick and the balance point is exactly behind the trigger ahead of the mount. When I had a much more expensive front drag control reel on the 4 piece, the balance point was at least an inch and a half further forward. I have one of the 2000s on a medium/light 7' ugly stick and the balance point is exactly behind the trigger ahead of the mount. ... It may not matter to everyone where the balance point is, but when I was a kid, I was taught it matters for long and/or accurate casting. My decades of experience tell me it seems to be true that the balance point relationship to the position of your hand while casting makes a big difference.
My oldest lx2000 is a two-tone grey/black and has to be getting close to 25 or more years old. It has been in service the whole time. I couldn't even guess how many thousands of casts or hundreds of fish it has reeled in. So, durability and reliability are worth mention. Just because these reels are inexpensive doesn't mean they are cheap. They hold up well.
Rear drag is convenient so you're not sticking your fingers in screaming line trying to tighten drag, and the quickfire II system makes casting a breeze. I love how this reel always resets with the Quickfire trigger ready for casting. Not many brands have this feature and it makes for some very easy and precise casting.
Total number of fish caught on these reels in 25 years probably over a thousand by now, with an average of a dozen or more fish per outing. This reel has handled small panfish to 4 lb trout and every bass size in between with ease. Corrosion will set in if you don't rinse them after exposure to salty water, but they still function even if they're not pretty.
In short: perfection.
The reel works great and for an inexpensive reel this if of much higher quality then expected
