Overall Rating: 5/5
Worth the cost.
Very prompt delivery. I had purchased a plastic reel to replace the one I had that was leaking badly. After all the work of installing a platform to hold the new one and then bolting it down, the new one leaked no matter how hard I tightened it. This all-metal one was easy to hook up and it has not leaked a drop. It is very sturdy, spins easily, and the handle is long enough to give good leverage when hauling in a heavy load. If it holds up well, I will no doubt replace two other plastic reels with this model.
