Throttle™ is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from One drop and it's done The only time this reel felt silky smooth was when it came out of the box. Once I began fishing with it, it lost its smoothness. Then, I accidentally dropped it in the water on a sandy part of the lake. Picked it up and could barely turn it. I then went home, cleaned lubed it as good as I knew how, and it never recovered. It's now gotten to the point that I can't turn the handle without a strong force, and even then it sounds and feels terrible. Pretty sad an all aluminum body I bought with toughness in mind turned out to give up after just one drop. I've had the cheapest of plastic Shakespeare's that have been through worse and still feel better than this reel. Sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compared to Shimano Symmetre I have for the past year been evaluating the Throttle 20 versus the Shimano Symmetre 2500. The Throttle has a rigid body with no flex....Symmetre does not....casting is farther with the Throttle, retrieve strong and smooth in both. As long as the durability of the Throttle long term pans out you have a definite winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Reel I've got this reel in size 20 paired with a 7' Medium Team KVD rod and it is perfect. This reel has a buttery smooth drag and plenty of power to muscle in the biggest bass around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reel! This reel is smooth and durable, and definitely one of my favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Reel Super smooth casting and smooth drag system. For only $59 you can't beat it. Perfect for throwing ned rigs, tubes, and for even crappie fishing. I would definitely recommend adding some of these to your finesse rigs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hopes of great reel flushed down the drain I initially bought this reel thinking my father need a good reel that is durable, reliable, and smooth. This reel showed potential by its description.( I do my research before buying a reel and extensively, especially paying careful attention to customer reviews.) So I bought it. The reel came in and looked promising. It was silky smooth, sturdy, and better than my dad's current reel. At first the reel's performance was outstanding. But a 3 weeks went by and the reel started making a grinding noise. This worried me since it was a new reel. Well I opened it and looked for the problem and saw some couple of interesting things that the reel was lacking in order for it to function correctly. Where the main gear sits it is a bit loose which is an issue because it forces the reel if the gears are not making right contact. That issue was what was making the grinding noise so to my conclusion. This reel is not worth bying, it has many flaws and has been a headache for the past couple of weeks.
