Shimano Core 50Mg Vs 100Mg...
Posted April 07 2012 - 12:26 AM
Already know which way I'm leaning. I was just curious from those of you who have both which you prefer. And what the advantages are for each. I know the 50 is a little more compact and has a few more bearings...both have roughly the same spool size.
The only reason I'm hesitant at all is I'm wondering if the 100 size Core would stand up to more abuse (from the fish I'm very easy on my tackle) ie...hook sets fighting, etc...and wondering if the 100 would be more versatile with allowing me to fish a wider variety of bait sizes. I know the 50mg is designed for finesse, but Tackletour (don't know why I even read anything off that lame ass site) said that when they tested the core 100 back in 2007 it casted light baits as well as the steez...and I have used a Steez and it was impressive when casting light baits.
So if the 50 won't cast further I'm getting the 100...if, however, the 50 will cast and pitch further with baits under 1/4 ounce them I'm at a crossroads but probably leaning towards the 50.
Any valuable input from people who own both reels would be appreciated....please don't compare it to the Diawas reels or anything like that I already know I'm getting a core just a little fickle on which one suits my style best, and if either is more durable or refined.
