works well. nice smooth retrive .happy so far.
Used it 3 times now on the Delta for bass fishing and love it, best reel for the money I’ve ever fished with
awesome products. looking forward to my next purchase
Haven’t tried it yet but the overall shopping and purchasing experience was very positive . Nothing was exaggerated and shipping time was accurate. So far so good . Will follow up when I use this reel this spring .
Bought this reel so I would have something high speed for spooning in deep water. Very smooth, works great dropping on a school and getting your bait back up quickly.
It took about 3 Month to get here so by the time I got it it was to cold to use so I have to wait till next year so then I can tell you if I like it or not
Need a bigger spool to small for big line
shipping was slow but I was kept informed every step of the way
Completely satisfied real works wonderful better than any real I have and I have quite a few
Well it took longer than expected to arrive. Found at a lower price after the fact . Like the reel don't know how long it will last it has a plastic gear in it .Time will tell . It cast good have not caught a fish with it . The weather has been bad. Will keep using to give a better review.
shipping took to long.
Bought for X-Mas gift.
Time will tell how quality of a product it is! So far very smooth reel
I realize the item comes from China but six weeks delivery is a little long.
I was skeptical when I first seen this because of the price and I figured I was buying a junk product. But I went with my gut and I ordered it and I am super glad that I did !!:)
No problems at all. Reel was shipped in timely manner. Good reel for the money, as good or better than many reels sold in big name sporting goods stores.
bought 4 of the dryad reels and they are perfect. looking forward to getting more reels in the future. Thanks again! great products
I was using the dryad high speed reel fishing for lake trout. we pulled in about 8 Lakers. everything on the reel was working smoothly except for the drag, i had to essentially crank the drag all the way up or the line would releasing. other than that it was smooth reeling, liked the handle grips and performance was on par.
This is an amazing reel for the value.
I would like to see it available with a dual brakeing system.

Excellent product and cant say enough good things about their customer service!
No hassle at all. See it but it.
Love these reels hav 4 of them with no problems at all great buy at this price point
The reel surpassed my expectations.I got the right hand drive and it casts really smooth and far. It took a little while of adjusting the cast control to get it tuned in correctly but when I had it right it just was great. I mainly use a Senko type bait with no weight and this reel puts it where I want it to go. I have several of the expensive reels and it matches them just fine.I would recommend this reel to others because of the way it performs and of course the coast. Very good reel.
The reel is very smooth in both casting and retrieval, I would purchase again
These new Dryad reels are the “real” deal!! They are suited for saltwater use but I’ve only used them in two bass tournaments and several non-competition days on the water. They are smooth as silk and have plenty of backbone to horse bigger bass out from under boat docks and such when used on my flipping rod.
I am very impressed with the reel couldn't be more happy with performance probably one of the smoothest fishing weapons I have ever used no complaints what so ever
Cast’s smooth and quality seems good.
Cast’s smooth and quality seems good.
Best baitcaster I have ever used
Ordered one of these thought it was a good deal thought I would give it a try receive the real really liked it went fishing performed flawlessly came home ordered another I have 2 now couldn't be happier well worth the money
Bought 2 baitcaster reels and both were a piece of junk. Had trouble with the drag, the line catching on the outside of the spool and more.
The reel seems really good but the knob screw that holds one of the handle knob fell out a few times of using the reel. Had to replace the handle with a custom handle. Not to pleased on how it’s built so far but the reel itself is good
I have 8 bait casting reels. I haven't used this feel one to much yet but it seems to be the best..
Performs very well. Very smooth retrieve . Cast accurately. Great quality for the price
Just what I ordered. Love it.
like thje reel but takes way way too long to deliver.
Bought 2 and matched them up with 7’6” St Croix medium rods with 30# braided line. Very, very smooth casting and retrieving. Long casts better than some of my reels that cost 4X as much! Actually thinking I might need to buy a couple more before people figure out how good they are and the price goes up. LOL
It takes a little while to arrive but I would put the quality and feel of the reel against fishing reels that are four times the price
I caught a few speckled trout in the Bay off the Corpus Christi coast and it worked better than I expected.
My son's first "adult" rod & reel for his first trip to the Gulf to go fishing.
I haven't fished with it yet but filled it and checked all of the functions and they work extremely smooth. Very pleased with it. If it works that well under fishing conditions I will be impressed and extremely happy with it. Cosmetics are wow as well.
The reel is very smooth , I like the drag and brakes on outside is very user friendly . Time will tell due to use in salt water . I recommend trying . I purchased 2 and gave one away .
Ordered the two reels and they showed up in a few weeks. Smooth casting, smooth retrieve, appear to be good reels. Only fished them once, but the pre spawn is beginning, they’ll be out on the water next week.
It appears that the shipment time has a lot to be desired. The product when it finally arrives is a product that is everything stated.
The time of request and the time of arrival is deporable.
Great reel for the money! I bought a second one already!
I have not got to use it except in my yard. It appears to cast very well and fits my hand good.
Love the smoothness of this reel !
Very good reel for the money as good as any $150.00 reel.
I ordered Several Bacasters from Savage and they hold up better than my Revo's..I've had them for 2 years and still look new out the Box with no Chipping.They have
Different gear Ratios for different types of Lures I'm using and I haven't had 1 Break down yet..
I fish Bass Tournaments and you need to have Reels that line up with the type of rod your using with Ballbearings.
Savage are the Best Reels anyone will ever need.
All of my Reels are (Savage)
I bass and musky fish every day and have spent big money on big name brands. but this reel shocked me! It out casts all my Abu Garcia bait cast and is as smooth or more smooth as any reel I own. I love it....
This is a great reel. Not only does it look awesome but it fishes tremendously. Once everything is set ie. drag, works like a charm.
I am very happy with the reel. I went fishing with it and caught some nice size bass and it handled fine. I will be buying some more things from you guys latter for sure. Thanks...Bob B.
Have only used it once so far but it performed very well.
Only got to use it once, but so far, I love it.
I'm a newbie with this type of reel and was a little anxious, but got it the tension and brake set and haven't had any problems. Throws great and reels in quick.
No issues with this reel! Cast and retrieve is great, speed is good as well.
It works great after setting the reel no backlasing truly very satisfied with this purchase
Reel installed on med action 7 ft rod. Reel very light and super smooth. I look forward to fishing for bass in Fall in Toledo Bend. Great price !! Shipping a little slow.
Fast shipping, item as described great buy for the price and quality of reel, will buy another in the near future
Very smooth reel ! Cast great as well. Can't beat it for the price! Definitely recommend! I put 50 pound braid on it with a heavy pole. Works great for frogging !
It's a very smooth reel and cast like a dream. Yes l would recommend this reel to my friends.
Smooth casting and retrieval with a wide gapped handle. Currently my favorite reel and well worth it in my opinion!
Received this reel couple weeks ago, and have used it in two tournaments. It's very smooth in casting and retrieve . The bearings was a little dry first time out , and out of the box , but couple drops of oil , and no more squeaking. Liked it so much , just ordered my second one .
1 st fish on nee reel. Done great
Very Smooth reel action. I would certainly recommend.
Very smooth reels!
Smooth , strong reel I bought 6 of them
I have used it once and it is smooth and very durable so far. I am looking forward to using some more this weekend!!
Caught using an under spin slow rolling over big rock with my new reel was able to make long cast .
I got this reel about Christmas time, I just used it this past weekend and loved it. a friend of mine has one he paid 250.00 for and he liked mine better, it's so smooth.
I was very excited to get my Fishing Savage DRYAD reel! I had plans of using the little reel for inshore fishing and some pond work. Topped it off with 30# braid and a short leader of 20# flouro and went fishing on a local 1/2 day boat. Once I dailed in the mag (#4 worked for me) the little reel is a great caster, very smooth in every aspect! I was a little taken aback at the retriev, the 7:1 gearing is more than I’m used to, but I got used to it quickly.
A perfect reel for inshore fishing and a great little reel for the price!

Good fishing reel and work for the money..
Works reallly well. Customer service was great. We will definely shop with you again!
Love so much that I'm getting another one!
My son love's it!!!
Caught this large Striper on Lake Texoma. Reel handled the fish without any problems.
It throws smoothly and has plenty of power. The retrieve is pretty much effortless. So far an awesome buy!!!
KILLER REEL! I ordered 2 of these, one for my girlfriend. Got it within two weeks which was amazing. We tested them and they feel super strong, durable, and very comparable. I'll be ordering more from this site! Thanks Fishing Savage, amazing stuff!
Wow just wow, i am really impressed with this reel. Cheap price but outstanding quality. Smooth performance indeed! I highly recommend this reel to those who loves fishing!
Smooth , easy to use,casts great!
