Best reel near 120 dollars

Recommended Posts

Shimano Casitas, Shimano Citica, Daiwa Tatula, Lew's Speed Spool, Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier. I would go with the Citica, unless you need a slow gear ratio, in which case go with the Tatula, or the BPS PQ, which isn't quite as good as the Tatula.

The Bass Pro PQ is a nice reel especially when you can find it on sale. Their JM signature series is on sale for 139 right now though and those are built like tanks. They might be slightly heavier but they are great reels.

I own a BPS Johnny Morris signature baitcast reel and a Daiwa Tatula.  I fish in club tournaments and these reels perform flawlessly.  They are better reels than I am a caster.  I can only imagine how they would do in the hands of a professional.  I also have a Pro Qualifier and 2 older ABU Ambassadeurs.  They work great but are not quite on the level of the JM or Tatula.

Lots of great reels mentioned, but I would take a look at the Pinnacle Optimus LTE, the Daiwa Tatula Type-R is the reel I use and you can occasionally find them at a great price as Evan K posted

I've got the 8.1:1 Type R.  Nice reel.  Only Pinnacle reel I have tried is the Primmus and feel it is a wonderful reel.  May have to give one of the Optimus series a shot.
