Need Help Picking New Reel

Recommended Posts

So I want to find a new reel to match my abu Garcia pro max rod. I mainly fish senko worms, top water frogs, and crankbaits. I want a reel I can spool with fluorocarbon and want to spend no more than 60.

That is why I don't order Online from Cabela's anymore.  $30 for the reel and $10 shipping.  Should be able to ship for half that.

Ditto. I find that most combos put together are either a bad reel on a good rod or a decent enough reel on a bad rod.

$60 is a little thin budget wise for a quality bait cast reel. A lightly used PQ, revo S or citica etc will get you more bang for your buck.
