Anyone ever use these?  Thoughts?

I know Keyes uses them, and although I use and love the Tranx I own, I wanted to save a few bucks replacing an old NaCL Revo.

Never owned one. But the reel sounds great on paper! 30 pounds of drag., stainless bearings. And its not heavy! Sounds like a win win. With regular maintenance anything is possible. Im interested also in hearing about this topic.

My suggestion is post the question on the muskie flea market on FB.  You'll get lots of opinions

Junk after a year, seen a few guys having problems with them after a season screws breaking, shaft wearing out, for an extra $20 you can buy a Tranx300, A3 was designed for bass swim baits not the wear and tear of burning musky baits.

I'll likely regret it but I bought it before I read this.  Abu Garcias keep letting me down and I already have two Tranx so I thought I'd try the A3.  12 months from now when I'm sending it back, I'll let you guys know! 🙂
