This will be my second post of the day - cabin fever is sitting in hard now that hunting season is over here in Oklahoma!

 

Basically I have a $60 balance on my amazon account I am going to use towards a spinning combo.

 

Will this combo meet my needs for experimenting with dropshot/ned/some Texas rigging or would I be better served looking at something else in a similar price point.

 

  • I'm open to any suggestions, but I don't want to go to much over $60 if any.

Pflueger makes decent stuff.  I like the President line of reels they make.  The Trion is a step or so below the President and is a $40 reel if bought separately.  So that's a $20 rod that it comes with.  Should work fine for what you are wanting to use it for.

I don't think I have ever spent over $45 on a spinning rod and reel. I always buy them separately though. Abu Garcia cardinal is a good $30 spinning reel, I usually get a fiberglass rod for $15 or under at academy

One of my two newest spinning combos I got last year worked well for me.

 

Garcia Mitchell Avocet RZ-2000 on a matched 6'6" ML/F Avocet rod- this one is in your budget. Loaded with 8# mono, this one's my finesse rod...drop shots, ned rigs, unweighted Texas rigs, etc.

 

The Avocet combo comes in ranges from UL to Medium, all well under your $60 limit - leaves you enough for line.

I have two Trion reels. One is a size 40 that's a bit too heavy. The other is a 30 I put on my "finesse" rod. I bought the latter in a pawn shop, still sealed up in the plastic. It feels just right for the 7'M rod I put it on. Good reels.

Shimano Seinna reel 29.99 and a Berkley Lighting or Shock rod. Tacklewarehouse has the rod for 49.99. you can usually find it at Walmart for less and sometimes ridiculously cheap like under 20.

I had a Pflueger Trion three years or so ago and I really liked it. When I upgraded to a Pflueger President I handed over the Trion to my son and he liked it for a year or so until he ran it over with his bike.

 

For fishing the Trion is good. Not so much as an accidental bike ramp.

Interesting idea.. the reel looks solid and I know folks love the lighting rod. 

 

Assuming the reel I would want is the SHIMANO 0068-2681 Sn2500Fe?

Yes Tim,

    The 2500 model would be the one I'd get TW shows the 1000 and the 4000 models also.

That reel would look real nice on one of those new Shock rods.

 

To the OP another suggestion is the Kastking Centron 2000 combo on Amazon for $59 https://www.amazon.com/KastKing-Centron-Spinning-Reel-Stainless/dp/B07D6NH8TR

 

It is one of the better sub $30 reels I have ever handled.
