    In a word SUPERB

    If the quality of these mid range priced reels is anything to go by the CS 10 must be out of this world………

    other manufactures be afraid very afraid

    James put me onto these reels last year, they are soundly built and a perfect size for all running line work. They perform, in my opinion, on par with reels carrying a much higher price tag. The retreve ratio on these reels is such that you don’t waste time on winding in from the bottom of the swim but you won’t spin fish off by being to aggressive. You can just tell they’ve thought about these reels during the testing & production phase.
    I’m so impressed with them, I’ve just purchased another 2!

    You’ve got to be kidding me! I already have one of the CS10 reels, which I thought was the best value for money reel out there, worth far, far more than the asking price and a quality piece of kit. So when it comes to getting reels for my son I just had to turn to Cadence, but obviously being tight I’m not going to buy him a CS10 right!!!
    So then I get an email from Cadence saying buy one get one free of the CS 5 reels, so a no-brainer £50 for two quality reels.
    Well they’ve arrived and I have just put line on the spools. Superb line lay with the help of a little washer (supplied), great spin, solid as a rock, lovely size faultless imho. I got one each of the 4000 and 3000. Would have been happy with one of these quality reels for £50, but two -happy days.

    Can’t beat it unless of course they do the same offer on the CS10????

    The build quality of these reels are fantastic. Feels like it should be a lot more money than it actually is. Smooth drag capable of handling any fighting fish . They also look the part with a great finish. Customer service from Cadence is outstanding. Very happy with the CS 5

    I’m just getting back into fishing after about 6 years out, i was a regular open match angler and only ever used daiwa reels for my fishing back then.
    I had heard a lot of good things about cadence products so thought I would take the plunge.
    I bought 2 of the 4000 sized cs5 reels after a brief chat the a cadence rep.
    A 4000 cadence reel is roughly the same size a a 3012 daiwa model and at £49.99 they are a little cheaper than say a daiwa whisker 3012, which is one of the reels i had previously.
    The cs5 is so much smoother than the daiwa whisker, in fact i would say its just as smooth as a daiwa tdm reel, which is about double the price.
    I’m so impressed with the reels i will be ordering another 2.
    The only one down side i would say its that i would have liked to see the spare spool be aluminium as well, not composite but as my rods will usually be set up ready to fish, i don’t think I’ll be swapping spools very often anyway, so it’s not a major issue.
    In conclusion, if you are after a nice compact, smooth reel, for £49.99 you can’t go far wrong with a cs5 (unless you are a brand snob who only buys daiwa, preston or shimano).
