Now I live in a lovely fishing town in Southern Oregon, my two speedmasters get constant use as they 'came across the pond' with me along with my Shimano rods & bigger reels.
Super fast retrieve for salmon fishing both trolling/downrigging & for surfcasting. They do need a bit of getting used to when casting as they are lighting fast & overruns can catch the unwary.
Otherwise they are a long lasting, strong, casting/boatfishing reel which I strongly recommend, special for anglers that use 'Super Braids' for fishing.

Go buy this reel you wont be sorry.
Great 6:1 ratio easy to keep up with those Kings trying to smoke your reel.
