Recommended Posts

Hi guys looking for opinions on what you would use for small swimbaits ?  or what qualities you'd look for ?  And remember for small swimbaits .... Thanks

For baits of that size I recently got my hands on the Daiwa Tatula HD.  This reel is awesome in my hands so far.  The drag is strong and smooth, has a good line capacity for a low profile reel and is comfortable in my hand being low profile. 

For this size I wouldn't want to deal with a round reel personally... it is just under what I would reserve those for.  I like the  little bit faster reel than what you can get with the 300 and 400 (Shimano size reference) round reels.  These extra capacity low profile reels are great for the size baits you've listed.  Hope this helps a bit I can give more detail if you'd like.

I find the round shimano reels, in 200 size quite easy to palm.. I sure do like them.. Plus, they have plenty of strength, a slower ipt, 2oz rigs are easy for it as well.

A regular reel would do just fine in that weight range. A daiwa advantage htsl or zillion or tatula all would be fine.

I use a Curado 200B for baits in that size. Don't really need anything very specialized to fish the smaller ones.

A Lew's come to mind like the BB1.

I initially use a revo winch as my swimbait reel ... I liked it and just upped from there but most 200 sized reels will do the job ... The 300 sized reels will do it better at the expense of weight

I chuck a savage gear 8 inch trout on a lews super duty and that's 3+ ozs and you still have a reel capable of being used with other techniques

Tight lines
