If it's a raptor then awesome deal. Retail is $475 or so. If it's the standard than it's still a good price, believe retail is $350 or so.
If it's the raptor and you decide not to buy, I will take it!!!

looking for new one
now you get to wish that you spent the 60.00 and bought the raptor LOL
no point in getting a single speed when you could have had the raptor for 60.00 extra

also, i you are planning on doing yo-yo, a better reel would have been the jx. Only reason why people said get the lx is because the price you posted. Since you bought new, I would drive back to turners, return the lx, and buy the jx - you will be glad you did.

john I think everyone was trying to tell you how great of a deal the raptor is. the raptor is a higher class of reel than a regular avet. were you sure they were offering you a raptor for 300? if so mind passing along the info?

also fishing sometimes has nothing to do with "strength".. I like, many on this board, have learned this the hard way.
