I got the "low profile" one or whatever they call it. They make the Bass Pro shops branded reels. I fished it for 2 hours, hated it and took it back for a Shimano. You cant go wrong with anything Shimano

If you like getting wind knots, buy a US reel. They make AWESOME wind knots, and lots of them

FTW

only definition I could find.

Wind Knot - an overhand knot put in the leader by poor casting, greatly reducing the breaking strength of the leader
