4000 size spinning reel for finesse

Recommended Posts

4000 size spinning reel Pflueger President Limited Edition.

I read somewhere that a bigger spool is better for FC on spinning reels.

 

I have a ST Croix 7'ML to pair it with...

 

2 big of a reel for It?

 

Am I over thinking this?

Yes, bigger spool will be better for straight FC.

You'll be fine with the setup.

Yes - you are on the rght path and could go up to say #10 lb. or #12 lb.  FC line on a 4000 size reel without too much trouble . For #8 lb. FC it would be ideal but below #8 lb. FC a 2500 series would work just as well .

I thought I posted a video on here of Seth Fieder using a 3000 sized Daiwa (4000 equivalent Shimano) for his finesse fishing.  Not sure where the link went.

I haven't had any issues with my 2500/3000 size Shimano reels and these lines:

 

6# Tatsu

6# Invisx

6# Sniper

6.2# Seaguar Finesse

 

I've had issues with a few lines when I tried to go up to 8#.  If I need greater break strength than that, I use braid.

I also prefer the 2500/3000 size reels for bass fishing. Mono/ Fluoro above 8# is easier to handle on the bigger spool but like Jfranco I'd go to braid.

Very similar to Tatsu.

InvizX #6 lb. on a 2500 series is not bad : Use backing with 65 yrds. of FC , close bail by hand after taking up slack  (usual spinning reel tricks) , etc. helps .
