: : I need some feedback. Unfortunately, a break in took my extra spools and line for my old Medalist 1494. The made in America-20 year old reel. Before searching for U>S. made replacement spools, I may consider buying a quality, low cost reel upgrade. My priorities are initial cost, durability, and quiet operation. I hate the loud click that many like. Any advice on this reel out there? Thanks, Frank
