Review 2 for Outdoor Angler RD30 Spinning Reel

WOW! What a deal!

Was browsing one of my favorite Walmart stores sporting goods dept. and saw this reel on sale for $8.97. It interested me because I had used a Diawa underspin reel and really liked the rear drag setup. This reel had the rear drag, was convertible left or right hand, had 3 ball bearings and was INEXPENSIVE!! So is said "why not" and purchased the reel. Put it on a Shimano 7 foot spinning rod and went fishing. Reel worked well but had trouble with the monofiliment line snarling. Changed line to braided line and it seemed to work much better. I've been using it almost every day for the last 2 or so weeks and have caught bluegill, crappie, white perch and bass up to 3 pounds (and one little catfish on my artificial lures). This little reel is the real deal! Was so pleased that I saw it on sale online for $7.98 delivered to my store free so I ordered another as a backup. I am more than pleased and definitely would recommend it to a friend! Great value!

Review 3 for Outdoor Angler RD30 Spinning Reel

Seems to get the job done

This is my second RD30 Outdoor Angler reel. I really like reels with the rear drags and most reels have the front drag. Thus I bought one and tried it out. It works fine. It did take a while for the drag to work smoothly on the first purchase but now it works fine. The second reel is now in the "loosening up" stage and I'm guessing it will be fine after about 3 to 4 trips out. It's been used just once so far. I don't know the line test the reel comes with. It feels like 8 to 10 pounds. I am using this line that came on the reel and this line seems fine on both reels so I'll use it this season and then strip it off for new 10 pound test. So go buy one and smile when your buddies pay $100 to $200. I just don't see any reason to pay such a price. Same goes for my rods! Buy cheap and have fun. Wise advice from an "older guy".

looks good, works good, price is very good for the beating I give them. I purchased them (two) for general fishing and using a durango rod. worked better than I expected on white bass, crapppie and stripers. Spooled with some good tough line. Like the drag system in the back.

Review 5 for Outdoor Angler RD30 Spinning Reel

A serviceable reel at a rock bottom price

This reel works fine. There is some slop in the anti-reverse (it is not exactly instant) and it is not as smooth as the Spinning Reel 30, but the drag is sensitive and works well. I replaced the line that came with the reel as I did not like it for fishing jigs & plastic, but it would be adequate for bottom fishing. Not a great reel, but a bargain at the price.
