Sougayilang Fishing Reel, 12+1BB Light Smooth Metal Spinning Reels,Saltwater and Freshwater
>Sougayilang Reel Reviews - 4.2/5 Stars
5 Stars - I've been looking for the perfect spin reel and I believe I just found it. I have the perfect cast with this bad boy and reeling in the big ones has been a breeze. It's so smooth and can handle a good bass fight. I absolutely love the reel handle. This is my first one like it and I'll be sure from now on to always buy one of the same. It was a pleasure doing business with this seller, they were quick and helpful with all my questions.
5 Stars - First of all, I really like the way this reel looks and feels. Pulled in a stripped base with no problem and the drag works nicely. Throws really well with light jigs. The extra large handle feels really nice when fishing for long period of time. I also love the zero reverse one way clutch bearing which gives me solid hooksets. I got the XY1000 with gear ratio of 5.1.1 which is plenty for me since I'm not looking to reel the fish in fast but to enjoy the moment of reeling them in. The 13+1BB makes the reeling very smooth and I can really enjoy the "fishing".
5 Stars - First make sure you order the blue one and not the green. I originally ordered the green one(200 size). It came quickly and I spooled it up with 10lb mono backing and Kastking 10lb lime green braid. The spool nut was loose and I didn't notice so it knotted my line and reeled in poorly(after 2 casts I noticed the problem). It was a decent reel for the price but I ended up giving this reel a 3 star review. After taking notice of my genuine displeasure with this reel a representative from Sougayilang emailed me with a sincere apology and an offer to send me the blue reel at no charge. I have to tell you the difference is like night and day. The blue one(AF2000) is bigger, badder and definitely changed my mind about these reels. You will not be disappointed I promise you. I have been fishing all my life and I would put this up against any $200 reel out there. It has replaced my Abu Garcia forever I am quite certain. I was leary of the "chinese made" cheapies on Amazon but I am no longer. A sturdy almost all cast metal body really helps hook largemouth bass without that after hook set sideways motion other reels make because of flimsy plastic design. Got a 4lb in with absolutely no troubles at all. I had to give 4 stars instead of 5 because I don't like the way the plastic finger piece feels on the handle so I swapped it out for a smaller one. Get this product if you have never casted in your life or are looking to blast bass or any other species on a budget. I must say I was impressed by Sougayilang's efforts in making me a happy customer.
5 Stars - Bought this reel thinking I would use it just for perch fishing. Once I received it I took it out and did some practice casts and to my surprise it felt very well put together. So steelhead fishing called out and I took my new reel and pole out for a real test. Four steelhead in two days and the reel has performed perfect. The drag is very easy to get just right, and even with a 11 pound fish on it, there were no issues. Got dirt and ssnd all over it, simply dipped in river and good as new. I am a lifelong fisherman and csn honestly say this reel is for real. Give it a shot.

5 Stars - 4000 series, The quality blew me away. Brought in good sized catfish out of a fallen tree no problem! I caught a few bass, it had no issues. Smooth and strong with a hard usage. Only fished it three times, but it performed flawlessly.
