It's been two years since I purchased my first ID 7/8/9 to pair with my 7wt Echo Ion XL. Much to my surprise, this reel is still going strong. Given I've exposed it to the salt, surf and sand on multiple occasions, this is a testament to the reel's durability. Never more than a quick rinse at the end of the trip. Yet, it keeps going. At this point, it has gar to 36", carp to 28", redfish, tiger musky and a number of other predatory species to its name. Would highly recommend, especially if you're looking for a low cost backup.

The ID was cheaper than most reels and I only needed it as a backup to my primary Ross reel. Lower price, lower quality. I think the screw holding the sides together is plastic so im worried it may strip out but no problems so far.

Finally had the opportunity to put my ID 7/8/9 through the gauntlet this past month as I fished roughly 50 hours over a 4-day span. This reel was my primary reel throughout and performed flawlessly. Construction is solid and the drag proved its worth battling smallmouth, common carp and even tiger muskie. Given the <$60 sale price at the point of purchase, I could not ask for me. I highly recommend this reel to anyone looking for a quality reel at a low price point!

Recently decided I wanted an intermediate line for my 7wt. As I couldn't find a spare spool for my Hydros SL, I decided to shop around for an affordable reel to house my new line. While I had heard of the I.D. (and it's gimmicky stickers), I hadn't ever paid it much thought. The price caught my attention though and reviews seemed good, so I decided to give it a go. First impression...it is a solid reel and more than I'd expect at its current price tag (<$60). Solid construction, decent design, and what appears to be a reasonably smooth drag. I may pick up a few in other sizes as spares. Highly recommend.
