Rated 4 out of 5 by OldCodger from Excellent reel for the price I have had a 7430 Arbor reel for just under two years now and like it very much. Reeling in line is very smooth and the drag is also very smooth. The oversized spool greatly improves line handling and casting distance. I fish a lot and use my reels 10 to 12 times per month. The only problem I have had is after extensive use the bail arm became a little loose due to wear. A little more attention to cleaning and lubing the reel on my part would probably have prevented this. At any rate, the problem was easily corrected by replacing the bail arm and bail arm guide, a quick and inexpensive fix. About 5 minutes and $3 and I'm good to go for another 2 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by t3kn33k from great squid yakka bream 30 Perfect combination for my 6 6-4 7 ft graphite rods 2-6kg range Matching the drag to rod weight perfect due to its metal composite body The oversized spool is bliss making it a faster retreave than standard

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowman from Great reel for the price! I bought this reel in Aug 2013 as part of the Arbor Combo. I have used it almost exclusively for surf fishing in California, targeting perch, corbina, halibut, etc. It has been dunked multiple times and dropped in the sand by myself and my son...I do try my best NOT to allow those things to happen. Every time they have I wash the reel off with tap water and let it air dry. So far no issues, it is as smooth as the day I bought it. It casts swimbaits and Carolina rigs far and accurate with hardly any nesting (any that do happen I would blame on my mistakes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by thefisheater from THE BEST EVER...... I purchased two of the 7450 at half price making a total of 16 PFLUEGER ARBOR REELS. I love the ARBOR for me the best ever, I have two 7430 four 7435 four 7440 and six 7450. Spooled with mono, floro, and super lines, all work very well. I caught a 7 lb. largemouth on a 7430, line 10 lb. Fireline 10 lb. floro leader no problem. I use the 7450 with braid 20 lb. to 65 lb. rod mojo inshore 7 1/2 foot heavy to fish umbrella rigs, slop, trash, grass and wood, with a 25 lb. max drag and 32.4 line pickup you can pull them out of anything. I plan on buying eight more to have six in each model for all applications. BUY SOME YOU WILL NOT REGRET.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by MR5HOLE from Excellent reel for Inshore/Flats fishing I’ve owned this reel/7450X for 3 years and so far have used it primarily for saltwater inshore/ flats fishing, targeting Redfish, Snook, Mutton Snapper and Speckled Trout. The drag on this reel is outstanding. Note, first time out with the reel using 20lb braid, I was afraid I’d burnt the drag out, after inadvertently hooking something big (assume grouper) that ran over 100yds with the drag cranked all the way down before the line broke. No damage occurred and it’s still working great with the original disks. Regarding casting distance; as advertised, this reel has exceptional distance capabilities…provided it’s matched with the right rod. In terms of performance and durability, this reel competes with other similar class reels that go for double the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mikei89 from Great reel, but extreme issues. I absolutely loved this reel, but ashamed to say it completely degraded. First, within days of purchase, my bailspring was extremely loose, making my bail pop open from fish strikes causing me to lose fish. Also, last month, the reel completely locked up on me multiple times to the point where i cannot use it. If the reel didnt have issues, this would be the best reel on the market. It's incredibly smooth, casts a mile, and the wide spool feels great. hopefully my reel was a one time mishap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blake55555 from Awesome reel I have owned this real for over a year now and it still feels brand new. I have kept braided line on this reel ever since, and have had no problems with nests or knots. I especially like the wide spool, which prevents these nests without giving up casting distance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by taizer from great reel but suffers quality This reel is such a great reel and performs so well when it works. The design is perfect. The problems like on another review is the screws inside get loose after a while and the reel locks up making it useless. Luckily im a good diy guy and opened it up and put locktite on the screws and tightened them up. so far so good. But now another problem the bail arm will not shut all the way down most times so I have to shut it manually. This basically tells me this reel is of sub par quality. I cant say how smooth it is though, its very smooth and drag is perfect, casts a mile and has good tq to reel bigger fish im. But its just not reliable. Id buy the president over it until they work out the issues because if I didnt have the problems I listed id buy a few more. But comparing it to my shimano, you can tell the quality difference right away I rated a 1 star because a reel should be 100% reliable for at least 1 year of use. This reel has given me problems after the first month of use
