Aaron,

This is a very good reel and I have used my Tekota 600 to good effect for light trolling purposes in Goa (caught a decent sized barracuda, no problem).

The reason I chose it over the other Shimano metal reels is because of its' levelwind feature, which makes it a lot easier to handle for occasional users of baitcaster reels.

What is the servicing facility like for Shimano in India? In Australia, all Shimano reels come with a 10 year guarantee, which makes them even more attractive when choosing equipment.

Wish you happy fishing !
