This is a KastKing Assassin baitcasting reel. Normal retail is $60 and is considered a decent entry level option. $42 is a pretty good price on this reel.

If you read some of the negative reviews you'll see that most of them are end user issues complaining about birdnesting. I have the royal legend and though the reel honestly feels cheap cause it's plastic, the plastic actual saves weight. If you want something that feels sturdy look into magnesium bodied units but they'll be heavier.

I have 2 reels by Kast King and they are pretty good for the price, but I would be cautious about the reviews. You can tell that a lot of them are paid to give reviews with free products or discounts. One of mine makes a grinding noise and when I asked about it, they said it's expected.

Ehh I'd stay away. The first big giveaway for me is the aluminum drive gear and shaft. Most every reel manufacturer uses brass for a reason. Makes me wonder what other corners they cut to save cost. Bait casters can be finicky and if the braking system isn't designed well, it can be a real headache to adjust.
I'd much rather spend a few more bucks on something like this

Kastking is a Chinese brand, but they have also stepped up their US Marketing quite a bit in some of the larger trade magazines. I have a few of their Spinning reels that I really like, but again I paid $30 tops for them so you can't expect a Lambo for the price of a Pinto.

At only $42, the assassin is an affordable reel for someone just getting into fishing or for someone who is in need of another reel but doesn't want to spend several hundred for a name brand...
