So hypothetically, if you were reeling in a Spook, it would "walk" just from you reeling straight in. When you set the hook, the spool snaps right back to center for the fight. The company also recommends these reels for youngsters who are not yet in tune with the fine arts of imparting lure action. I played with the reels for a while. The drag seemed smooth, I couldn't get the line to twist or loop and ranging between $35 and $90, the price seems right.
