Not a bad price for the reel. I have had this reel for a couple of years and it is a good reel. It is a little whiny compared to older Currado or Chronarchs. It is 129 at amazon as well.

They're normally $150...this is a great deal. Reels are an area where you definitely get what you pay for.

This might brand me a noob.. but I could never get into baitcasting reels.

I have a couple good spinning reels and a few backups... and a half dozen antique spincasting for friends and family tagging along.

I do most of my fishing freshwater with moderate to heavy cover..

am I missing anything by not trying to gain some skills with baitcasting type of reel?

With the fishing I do?

I was thinking like you too when I first started fishing, then as time goes by, when you start fishing with lures, using a baitcast reel is a lot easier to work those lures. Now using a spinning reel feel weird to me.

Honestly it's all preference. Baitcasters have their place, spinning is thought more of finesse fishing. I'd recommend taking the time to learn how to use a baitcaster, could help you branch out in species of fishing. Also they have the Abu Garcia black max for $40, good entry level reel to learn on.

Academy had a price mistake on this reel a week ago where it was only $99.99. Was able to pick one up - that's one slickdeal.

Baitcasters allow you to use a wider variety of line and is best suited for medium to heavy sized lures (3/8oz and more). It takes far more skill to use a baitcaster, but if you learn, you will have more control over your casting, lure control, the line, and the fish. You can thumb down on the drag in a millisecond, not possible with a spinning reel. This gives you a lot of control when fighting a fish and casting close to structure. The spool direction is inline with the rod guides, which decreases line twist. With spinning reels, you can only use up to around 8lb fluoro on most normal sized reels because the line will coil up like a slinky. With baitcasters, you can use 20lb fluoro on most normal sized baitcasters without an issue.

This deal is $10 more than the price this reel can be had via VIP discount. Good deal if you want a 200 sized mid-range baitcaster. I highly recommend splurging on the new Curado 70 for lighter lures that are 1/2oz or less.
