125$ Baitcaster So....many...options

Recommended Posts

im looking at a ton of baitcasters in this range and I cant pick one that is better than the others. Every time I think Im gonna get one I find a review of other product and end up changing my mind. Im looking at:

 

Lews tournament MG

Daiwa lexa 100

daiwa t 3 ballistic

bp tournament pro

shimano citica

shimano curado(if on a deal)

abu revo S

 

Im thinking a 6.3:1 or close. I want to use 10# invisx on it. 

 

Its going to be used for jerkbaits, mostly lucky crafts pointer 78 dd and xd.

 

the rod will be a *** 6'7 M F as Ive heard many great things about these in regards of quality and even compared to reels in the 250$ range. 

 

the two most important things for me are casting distance and ability to cast light lures. 

 

ALL input is appreciated.

You can probably find a second hand curado 50e for $130 or so. If you're looking to throw small pointers on a budget, I believe it is the best option.

I bought a lews speed spool and I got a few citicas for 67 at the classic it's a toss up the lews throws farther and is smooth as butter but the shimano's don't feel that smooth until you put line on them and start fishing them then they are awesome. Tough call on returning the lews and getting a couple curado's and going all shimano

i just order the t3 ballistic for $110 on TW but also plan on getting the tatula for $105 on ebay. i demoed both and the t3 felt a little nicer but the tatula got fantastic reviews on TW and tackle tour.com

Tatula is a more robust reel. I like it for doing the dirty stuff like pitching into cover, cranking, etc; though it can cast just about anything. The Ballistic is more of a light duty reel to me. It's good for bouncing jigs off rocks, fishing t-rigs, weightless plastics, and stuff of that nature. Should make a sweet 1-2 punch.
