Thought y'all might be interested. Basically the same reel as the newer Sienna 1000 but with one less ball bearing. For a $20 reel it isn't too bad really.
I just uploaded the video today. Only a couple of things I personally don't like about the reel (subjective really).

Quite amazing, aren't they....

When you consider that if they're selling them for $20, they're just as likely buying them for $10; the wholesaler is probably making 100% as well, so there's a good chance the reel costs under $5 to make.

Could be... economy of scale is huge for a low cost good quality reel from a major industry player I would imagine.
