Found a few new CS 501's going for less than $150.00. Are these reels any good for speed jigging? I owned one for beach fishing about 6 years ago when Pro Gear was still in business but sold it after I had to keep replacing the bearings due to abuse;) . I do not believe the reel was intended to be fished while wading in waist high water and or sand blasted by your occasional gale force wind. These were great little star drag reels.

If I recall, the gear ratio is 6.1 and the max drag is 17 lbs. Will this reel work or will it need to be upgraded ( drags.. bearings... )?
