Help Me Pick A Deep Crank Bait Reel (Pfleuger, Daiwa, Or Bps)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a deep cranking reel. I currently own daiwas and shimanos. 

 

My budget is under $100 and I narrowed it down to these three (still open to other suggestions). 

 

Daiwa Lexa $69

Pfleuger Supreme $99

BSP ProQ $99 

 

Which one?

Daiwa Lexa without thinking it too much, no matter how much you pay for it is still a 130 dollars reel

Thanks Raul. You would suggest a Lexa then?

They make a PQ in a 4.9. That would be a good recommendation. Does the supreme come in a low gearing? I'd recommend the Supreme before the PQ, but id recommend a low gearing on either

Check out eBay!!! I bought a couple shimano curado I new in box for 110, and they are amazing reels. The 5.5:1 I bought for crankbaits has amazing power

I see Ebay has a bunch of new Daiwa Tatulas for sale at $98.

Staying under $100, my personal choice...in order...would be as you listed, except I would put a 5.4:1 Tatula first, then the other three.  You should be able to find a Tatula under the $100 limit on fleabay.  Although I am not a one brand guy, I am partial to Daiwa reels.  Love my Curado 51Es, but if I had to chose I'd keep my Alphas reels.

 

I have several Daiwa models, but none are a Lexa.  However, it would be my first choice of the 3 you listed simply because I am so familiar with Daiwa reels and its original price is more than either of the other 2 reels.  Which in theory should make it a better reel given what everyone always says "You get what you pay for."

I prefer a Lew's BB1 over all those reels. Its lighter than all of them, smoother, and casts farther. I personally have the BB1L 5.1:1 left handed version. Got mine off eBay for $99 new. I also have the Abu Garcia Orro Winch and it's awesome as well. Can be had for $84 new.

 

These were made for crankbaits but I use them for swimbaiting and they're perfect.

Get the Tatula 5.4:1 on ebay for $100. The BPS PQ 5.2:1 is very good though for deep cranks and it's a little more fool proof than the Lexa.

That is a great price on the Lexa. I've been tempted to get one myself.

 

For deep cranking, get it in the 4.9:1 ratio if you go with the Lexa.
