I have both. I prefer the S. She is a sweet sexy little hunny of a reel. That said, I love my PQ. It will be easier for a beginner to learn on.

Stop by a BP and check them all out.


I definitely will! Thanks!

Wait for Bass Pro Shops Spring Classic sale.  PQ's go on sale for $80 on a regular basis but,  especially during the Classic.  The new BPS Extreme is supposed to be pretty nice as well. I have two PQ's and really like them.  

 

Find and read the 5 year challenge,  you'll be sold.

Decide what you'll be using it the most for. That will help you decide. Do you fish salt water extensively?  Is line recovery,IPT an important factor? What about weight? Senkos or hard baits?  Also, look into purchasing used equipment. Your dollar will go further and you may be able to afford a good used combo for what you have to spend.  Some shops will have last year's models well into the following season.  I picked up my Sol from a guy that had two of them on his shelf for longer than he cared and got a great deal on it.

 

Not to highjack the thread, but glad you found a new Sol at a great price.  I picked up a 2nd one 2 weeks ago.  Plan on posting a picture of it eventually.  Previous owner upgraded internal and external, and I installed a Presso spool in it.

My S is on a medium fast Veritas micro guide 7' rod. It's mainly my jerk bait set up.

My PQ is on a 7'6" MH Winch Veritas. My dedicated cranking set up.

IMHO if you plan on using your reel for salt water I would go with the 5500C as it is a beefier reel. However, it is bigger than a palm reel (PQ) and may not be comfortable for you? They are basically two different reels so as someone suggested in a previous post, probably should go with the reel that you like the best for what you will fish the most. Unless of course you can afford to buy both?
