Throttle™ is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best reel for the money very durable and has handled some 5 plus large mouth from deep water and light line and the drag has done fantastic. I highly recommend getting you a few

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Went through 3 Have always loved quantum not my go to brand but if I'm looking to spend some money I get a nice quantum but I've gone through 3 different throttles and all 3 either had a nitch where it had a hard spot right out of the package or within a couple weeks it got rough and made a constant grinding noise

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love this reel but... Love this reel but after month of daily use the reel knob broke off. I would hope that I would get more than one month of use. I'm now looking for a replacement reel handle.

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.
