We used up to 1/2oz crank bait with no problem. this reel works very well you just need practice casting and adjust the mechanical brake for lure weight.

It works by slideing a little bar that is on top the reel to the on or off position. Distance depends on how heavy your weight is. 10'- 35'+

Yes and No it does not work everytime. I had some small backlashes but easy enough to spool out and fix. But the On /Off switch needs to be on and make sure you check it before you cast. If you don't you will have the mother of all birdsnest in the reel.

I believe it works every time, but if there was a malfunction or a part was missing then the ant-backlash might not work then. And if you switch the anti-backlash off then yes it will create a bird's nest
