This is the reel on the rod I got. It's a Berkley rod. 7' med/fast action. Really enjoying it. I still can't believe hoe smooth this reel is. I heard mixed reviews on the reel, but my review is 5 stars. Iv only owned one other reel in my life that was this smooth and I think this one has that reel beat. It was a Daiwa Pro. That reel was my favorite for years and years. It got stolen out of the back of my truck. Someone opened my camper top and took every rod and reel I had. Hated it but couldn't do anything about it. That was when I stopped fishing for several years. Back in the game now though. Haha Love this reel.
