Like reel have 276i and1276sli do not like clicking when reel in, guess that must be a reel speed indicator. Do not care for it would like to be able to do something to get rid of it. Joel

Do not buy this reel
The main issue with this reel is that the line cuts groove through the rotor assembly where release pins inside reel are causing casting problems (line sticking in grooves)the rotor assembly should be made out of something which line doesn't cut through eg.( Hardened steel)

Consistent casting problems
As several other reviewers have noted, I've had consistent issues casting with this reel. The line stops and the lure drops into the water only a few feet off shore. I've never had a reel do this before. We have restrung the line and tried multiple fixes all to no avail. I'm extremely disappointed in this reel, thought I was purchasing a quality product that would last years and it's barely a year old. Will not purchase this brand again.

bought this 276i for my wife. the first little sun perch she caught stripped it out. the gears in this must be made out of plastic.
