100 Dollar Bait Caster

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a Reel in the 100 dollar range. I'm looking at a, Lews Reel or a, Abu Garcia Orra SX Reel. Which one would you guys get? I know i could get the a Pro Qualifier, but with shipping i'd rather have the other 2 opinions

I love my lews but its a tournament, not the regular 100 dollar one. Curados are on swle for 99 at bps. Havent fished the orra 2 only held in store and it felt freat. Cant go wrong with either 1

Either should be fine, but if you can get a Curado for $100, then that is the way to go.

Curado G for $90 -$100 is a no brainer.

You can find Daiwa Tatulas on Ebay for $100. I am loving mine so far.

i had a lefty Curado for a minute. sold it immediately b/c it had a notch sticking out on the side of the brakes. it dug into my palm so much that it only took two outing for me to sell it. horrible design. not sure what the heck happened there.

i think they eliminated it the next year. the shimano guys can probably tell you which past year to avoid getting it.

you can see it on the bottom right of the left reel.

At the 100 dollar range for lews I would look online for the tournament MG, The new orra is nice except it is mag breaks only, which is not too bad, but for like 65.00 on an auction site you can get the previous model daiwa exceler which has the mag -z breaking.

Lews or the Curado, either is a good quality reel. If you can mount them both and feel em, I'd do that first. You may find something in one or the other that isn't right for you.

The Curodos are discontinued. I don't think i want a reel that's discontinued. I'll keep doing the Reel search. I really haven't decided yet.

A lot of reels get discontinued I got an E series and it's discontinued I would buy more if they weren't I don't understand that logic, not trying to be a jerk about it.

That Curado has such a name, there will always be parts and service available for it.

The daiwa t3 ballistic is on sale for 109 right now. Easily the best option

Daiwa t-3 ballistic at tackle warehouse for 109 ($250 reel) is great deal.  I jumped on the 8.1:1 lefty.  You could find lews tournament mg for around $100.

It's discontinued for a reason

Please explain. I'm interested in getting a curado for $100. Maybe there's a reason I shouldn't?

Why is that?

Do you sell everything you have when they eventually get discontinued too?
