I have several reels, among them are a Bauer MXP2 and 2 SA System One 4/5/6's that I've owned for around 25 years. Let's just say the 456's have a lot of "character" these days but they work just fine and sound great.

I use both the Bauer and 456 as my go to reels. Value wise, the 456 beats the Bauer hands down.
