This was my first baitcasting reel. I wanted my first baitcaster to be my last, so I got this reel. The price was high, but I have NO REGRETS. I heard casting into the wind can be a problem with other baitcasters, but not with the Calais DC! I can literally cast into HEAVY winds, not thumb the spool and still won't get a backlash. Pretty amazing if you ask me. Just make sure you don't spool 15 lb. Invizx fluorocarbon on the reel. It was a backlash nightmare. 30 lb. Power Pro casted like a dream. The only real problem was the slow shipping...
