This uber simple and practical design allows you to adjust the line tension to your liking with a quick turn of a hex screw. The reel insanely light, super quiet compared to a click and pawl design. The price point is also under nearly every reel I reviewed before making a decision. I can't express how happy I am with the 0/1 version of this reel I'm using with my 1w rod.
