    I have several of the 50 two speeds, PLD 30's and braid and jigs.
    So far I love them but the vedict is still out, haven't gotten any hogs on them yet and not sure what happens when I need new drag washers and such. I have did a lot of research and they seem to be the same body that is used on alot of the generic Oriental reels. I would love to kjow more if anyone else has tried them also.

    Just posted this under the linked thread:

    Currious about the actual bearings used. I used to sell bearings, and I know quite a bit about them. The Chinese are not known for making good bearings. Manufacturing quality bearings requires a clean facility with a lot of very expensive machines. Many Chinese bearing factories were famous for their dirty facilities, and cheap machines. Some even using huts with dirt floors. They also used poor quality steel. That was 7-8 years ago, so they may have improved, but I certainly don't think of "made in china" as a badge of quality. I'll stick with Avet--made in USA, and I know I can get parts and support.
