Spinning reel recommendation for a St Croix legend extreme spinning


Recommended Posts

Good morning, guys! 

 

I'm having trouble picking out a suitable reel for my newly purchased St croix legend extreme 6'10 medium extra fast, 

 

ill be using it for primarily wacky rigs, drop shot, some smaller finesse stuff. 

 

All of my casting reels are Daiwa and am having an issue deciding on a reel for the new rod.

 

Let me know thanks!

Thank you guys, not sure if i want to be in the 800$ range. 

 

Was definitely considering the taula Elite which is about 300$ right now. 

 

But the ones you guys suggested look beautiful

Shimano Vanford 2500 is very quite retrieve and smooth drag light weight reel.

If you have large hands the stem is a bit short. The Stradic would be my 2nd choice.

Congrats...that's pretty much my dream drop shot rod...if I was to pair it right now I'd go with a Shimano Exsence A (3000). They don't make a 2500 but even if they did I've noticed the 2500 and 3000 models seem to be about the same weight anyway...please keep in mind I've not actually used this setup before (only wish I had) but found myself asking what I would get for a drop shot rod / reel if money wasn't an option and this was it. Hope you enjoy it.

A 3000 Shimano Exsence or Vanquish would look sweet on a Legend Extreme.  Got a couple Exsence and I love them.

Check out the Shimano Vanford if that's the case....

 

Excellent reel.
