I’ve seen these reels on my local CL and the auction site lately. Does anyone have any knowledge about these? Are they complete junk or a descent reel for someone who keeps their gear maintained?

From what I can find out on Google, they're almost certainly just another brand getting their logo slapped on some gear made in China.

The little lever drag reels are an interesting hybrid of an Accurate 197C and a Maxel, they have some very nicely made parts in them (anything machined tends to be really good, frames/gears/spools, and some terribly made parts alongside those (bearings, screws, anything cast). Quality control is almost non-existent so your reel could be lovely or it could be terrible.
