Just wondering if these reels were any good for throwing plugs off the beach. I can get a few new ones for 30.00 each. I like the price, but only if they will last a while and cast a stingsilver or mirrorlure.

The BCX models are made in China, not in Sweden like the high-end Abus. I've never owned one of the BCX lineup, but I have heard that they are not up to par with the rest of Abu's reels.

the BCX line are just not teh same quality that I have came to expect from Abu. My brother in law had 3 and they didnt even look like a ambassadeur on teh inside. he had multiple problems out of them after a few months. That just turned me against them and I am a ambassadeur fan.
