Is this off brand junk because that's what it looks like at a glance. Has anyone used these?

It sucks. Even if it's $20 not worth it.

I read somewhere that they offer people a free t-shirt or hat upon receipt of the reel for a 5 star amazon review so their high rating is mostly due to people who haven't even really used them. If you dig a little deeper you find out they don't hold up too well especially in salt water.

I have been using their 4000 reel for surf fishing for about 6 months now.. so far it's holding up. I got a free $10 sunglass when i ordered last time.

Just ordered the 10000 for boat fishing. Thanks Op

Bought one for me son. He submerged it. Not dunked it but was basically swimming with it before I realized what was going on. Lol
I pulled it apart and cleaned it out. Sprayed the bearings with WD40.
Now, it sounds like an old train rattling down the tracks on the retrieve, but it's still going. Hasn't seized up.

WD-40 is one of the worst things you can use as a lubricant for a reel.

Wasn't sure what other options I had given the bearings went swimming. Just wanted to stop them from rusting out.

Go to bass pro they have the second Gen Pfleuger presidents for less than $30 an excellent reel.
These can be very hit or miss on quality.
Some are excellent some are junk. Lot of the reviews are "fishy" to be honest.

If you're worried about the fake amazon reviews then go on YouTube. Plenty of reviews and comparison videos. Also not sure about what is different on the 6000 series and up reels that make it saltwater rated but if they're not advertising it then I wouldn't use it for salt. There's other options out there such as their Kodiak reel

I been using the 4000 on salt without much issue so far. What do people use to grease the reels? Why is wd40 bad?

I ended up canceling my 10000 order and bought a conventional reel instead. Heard those are better for boats

I use a Pflueger President on my 7'6" TFO Inshore spinning rod. It's an awesome reel for the money. You won't be disappointed. I bought the 4000 and have caught some decent size fish on it and it handled no problems at all. 27" Black Drum, 20"+ Trout and Reds.
I've even dunked it and it's still firing. Great reels.
