    I got one of these shortly after they came out a few years back. I liked the idea, but to be honest I havent had any issues with tangling on my spinning reels. That being said, I've always invested a few bucks on better reels.

    For its price this is a solid reel with out without the gimmick. I never got a review done because I've never managed to catch a fish on it! It does however cast well and I have never had a tangle.

    Clive, what is a good price range for a better reel? I usually top off at about 80$ but I do have a reel that was a gift that was about 210$ and I've still had a few birds nests on that one.

    The only issues I had with tangles on a spinning reel was using super thin braid and probably too much line. Other than that I dont have any issues really.

    If I'm not careful about line twist I can get some serious wind knots which create the loops that the Wavespin is suppose to compensate for.

    What kind of fishing are you doing? Shore fishing? light/ultralight fishing? casting big heavy baits?

    Generally happens when casting lighter lures/plastics into wind or anytime I use inline spinners without high-end swivels.

    koke: $80 is a good price point for a spinning reel. From 80-$110 you wont notice much difference IMO. Once you start using reels $140+ you really feel the quality difference and for people who fish a lot, spending the extra $50 will pretty much guarantee that your reel will last much longer.
