Lowest price ever according to the camel. Decent reviews.

For what it's worth, some of the other sizes are the lowest according to CCC.

ABF-30b- 175 yds, 8LB - 36.22 [amazon.com]

ABF-80b- 220 yds, 30LB - $50.24 [amazon.com]

I own a couple of these. The best explanation is on the product description.

"Featuring a secondary drag system in the rear of the reel, the Baitfeeder switch completely disengages the primary drag system. With the bail of the reel closed and the line remaining well under control, the Baitfeeder switch allows line to pay out under an adjustable amount of tension. Once the fish has had time to completely eat a bait, a turn of the reel handle disengages the baitfeeder system, re-engages the primary drag system and the fish can be hooked and landed with total control."

Basically, there's secondary switch on the reel that lets the line pay out for your bait to swim freely with the bail being closed.

Can someone tell me what is special about a baitfeeding reel? I'm looking for something for casting for bass and northern, and for fishing with a bobber.

I have the 4000 size. Its a nice reel, though it is a bit slow on the retrieve.

I bought this the last time it was on sale & used it for the first time a week ago using live sardines. I loved it!

The "micro drag" knob that allows you to set a secondary drag when using the baitfeeder switch in case you prefer to not have the line as loose as you would with an open spool is conveniently located by the switch.

Seems like a good deal, but not sure if this is truely a saltwater reel?

Either way I'm holding out for the new Penn SS VI live liner series.
