has n/e one ever used the fin nor offshore spin reels b4??? they look like its built like a tank but with the price being that low it makes me wonder if it will hold up to jigging???

DO NOT BUY and RUN as far away as you can at light speed. Dont let the cheap cost draw you in. I had one blow up on the first couple of drops Bretbaker was there it was comical. Many have had a similiar experience

it was pathetic. the reel (according to glenn) caught a few medium AJs in Florida before its use in NC. after watching it "perform", I am questioning whether it could even catch a bluefish ;)

seriously the reel blew up while jigging a 300 or 400g jig from 300'. no fish on i dont think. it was bad/hilarious.

gman / bret, maybe without a fish on the jig but you may have hook up to a giant rock on your assist hook? Just kidding :D
