    The bb1 is the best reel I have ever owned. It is smooth as butter and is easily adjustable. I opted for the 6.4 model since I have two 5.1 speed spools. The drag is awesome. I caught an 8lber on it with a pretty tight drag and felt like the drag was off while reeling in the fish. I would recommend this to a friend.
