THROTTLE™ is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Reel Super smooth casting and smooth drag system. For only $59 you can't beat it. Perfect for throwing ned rigs, tubes, and for even crappie fishing. I would definitely recommend adding some of these to your finesse rigs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hopes of great reel flushed down the drain I initially bought this reel thinking my father need a good reel that is durable, reliable, and smooth. This reel showed potential by its description.( I do my research before buying a reel and extensively, especially paying careful attention to customer reviews.) So I bought it. The reel came in and looked promising. It was silky smooth, sturdy, and better than my dad's current reel. At first the reel's performance was outstanding. But a 3 weeks went by and the reel started making a grinding noise. This worried me since it was a new reel. Well I opened it and looked for the problem and saw some couple of interesting things that the reel was lacking in order for it to function correctly. Where the main gear sits it is a bit loose which is an issue because it forces the reel if the gears are not making right contact. That issue was what was making the grinding noise so to my conclusion. This reel is not worth bying, it has many flaws and has been a headache for the past couple of weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best reel I have for finess fishing! This reel has by far surpassed my expectations for the price! I would recommend it to anyone! It works great for finess and its yanked in a 6lb California bass no problem.
