i have a shimano ultra light with a trigger that has given me several trouble-free years. they are fine for fresh water but DONT'T take them into salt water. shimano's salt water series of reels don't even have a trigger option.

Put the trigger option down and walk away quickly! Agree with other posters - had a couple of good outings with them but they always broke or stuck soon after using them and i just ended up flipping the bail anyway.

One handed operation? How do you reel? With your teeth? And if you reel with your other hand, is that hand so busy between the time that your just reeled the bait in and the time to reel again as to not be able to open the bail?
