Anyone seen or tried one of these reels? Supposed to lower the risk of creating birdnests in braided line because of the spool size. Sounds like a good idea, but they are a little pricey.

Heyya,
don't know too much about them...but the reviews i've found seems to question durability... Looks great on their website though. www.usreel.com/

Eminent Brother,
I think it's just another Made in Commie China spin reel. Diawa used to have and may still have a big spool spin reel. I never heard anyone say anything (good or bad) about the big spool Diawa's. Now if they made a manly man baitcaster, then maybe it would be a different story:D

Had one in my hands at the Suffern NY Sportsman show...I was working the G Loomis booth and had a guy come in with one he just bought. I wasn't impressed at all. Seemed like kinda poor workmanship, handle felt small, just did'nt like it...I'll stick with Shimano they have treated me just fine over the years.
