    First off this is my second centron reel. I also have the 2000 model and liked it very much so I thought I would try the micro version. I have a presidential and a couple shimano reels that range from $65-100. They aren't top of the line but are very good quality reels. These centron reels feel just as good as they do. They cast as good, real as good and feel just as smooth. I'm not saying these are the best reels ever made but they are the absolute best reel you can buy for under $50 imo. The only possible points I see not lasting as long as my other reels is the drag knob and drag linkage feels just a little flimsy. I will say that they can catch big fish as I ran into a school of hybrid bass the other day and caught several 5lb fish very easily with no problems on the 2000 reel. I have it outfitted with kastking 12lb braid and 10lb fluro leader. Just to end with, this is a very good reel for the money imo. You can't go wrong here. Thanks for reading.
    Got this in size 3000 to replace my really old Ryobi Silver Cloud, and boy have I been happy with this! You can tell it's not 100% buttery smooth like those $200+ reels, but man is it close! The bail never snaps closed on hard casts, so you never get snap back which was the biggest problem I had with my old reel. It clicks clear but not obnoxiously loud when the drag is pulled, it clicks like a $250 Penn reel. I caught 2 large mouth bass and a shoal bass on this within my 1st 10 minutes out. The 2nd large mouth was a shade under 8 pounds, fought like crazy, and didn't seem to bother this reel at all. I've been so impressed with the KastKing brand that I tried their Florocarbon line too, and have been impressed with it so far too! Best of all, it seems not to twist the line at all, which is a huge problem on many other reels.The good - Looks awesome! Super quiet when reeling. No bail closing snap-back. Doesn't seem to twist the line like other spin cast reels. Almost as smooth as the high-dollar brands. Feels expensive!The bad - The crank handle is a little small for someone with large hands. I've never heard of this brand before seeing it on Amazon.Overall, really impressed with this brand. There's no way you can beat this for the money, it feels better than many $100 reels, and almost as good as a $200 reel.**UPDATE** one year laterStill my favorite reel. I've used the Centron in freshwater and the Summer in saltwater each over 100 times this year. The Centron is still 100% perfect. The Summer still has zero slop and works perfect except the drag no longer clicks... but let's look at it's price, the way I've treated it, and it's environment. Best price for it's quality. I have never taken it apart and cleaned it, ever. Salt water and Florida sun destroys everything, except this reel! I did just buy some reel grease, so hopefully that brings the drag click back. If it doesn't, I'll update. Still 5 stars!**Update again**The Summer's drag click has physically broken. The little spring loaded piece that makes the drag click was twisted and the tip was broken off. No corrosion at all on the piece so I have no idea what made it break. It did last a year and a half, roughly 150 days of 12hr+ Florida Salt Water fishing. That's about 1800 hours of abuse. Not bad. It's just unfortunate that a part that wasn't affected by rust was the part that broke, but it went out like a champ on a 38 inch Snook.
    Loved the first one so much i just bought a second one. Liked the quality, finish, smoothness and the solid feel. Only thing i disliked is the cost for an extra spool. I loaded it with 6 lb braid for small fish but i also want to load it with maybe 10 or 12 lb test for bigger fish. I called customer service for another spool and the price was $12. The price for the reel was only $22. Why can't Kastking add a second spool and raise the cost a little? Just not more than half...
