I got one of these bad boys at the begining of the fishing season and i knew that it would be a good reel being that it is an Abu Garcia but i was literally blown away by this reel! It uses a new design that is actually shared between Abu Garcia and Penn for this reel design. The reasons i love it is that it is super smooth and thats the big thing that stood out to me when i used it for the first time, the second thing that stood out id how strong the drag is 27lbs worth, lets put it this way i was fishign it along side of my Abu Garcia big game 10000i which costs around 40-60$ more than an alphamar and it simply out performed it in every category, out cast it, was smoother, more drag, etc... so much so that i sold my big game 10000i to get another reel. Simply put it's a killer deal of a price vs. perfomace ratio thats out of this world!! The best price i have found for this reels is of course from Dave at Bottom Dwellers!!
