I currently have the quantum 1st generation hypercast reel that has work relatively great over a 3 year period but recently the hands-free cast lever will not pull the wire barb all the way back. How does the quantum newer snapcast holds up with extended use? I'm debating buying the newer generation of easy cast spinning reel that they have vrs sending my hypercast back in for maintenance. I'm looking for feedback on the snapcast before I drop any dough on it. At first impress it seems alot harder to work the casting lever. It feels like my fingers aren't long enough or too long and get's in the way.
