Shimano Coriolis 100

Recommended Posts

Do you guys like this reel?  I know, it's their bottom end stuff and a lot of Shimano's lower end stuff sucks but I was just looking for something within my budget to pair on a crankbait rod.

Does it cast far?  Is it built sturdy?  Good drag?  Is it pretty much like a Citica?  I was thinking it might be like a Daiwa Procaster 100 but not sure.

You won't hurt my feelings if you think this reel is garbage.

Cheers!

No.

I owned two and gave a new one to LBH which I think he probably gave away to someone else. You would be MUCH better off with a Citca or buying a used reel from someone on our Flea Market when they pop up.

If you are talking about the Procaster 6+1 ( PR100H/HL ) that 's a reel I would recommend easily ........ but not for crankbaiting, with an IPT of 28" reeling in deep divers with that reel feels pretty much like trying to reel in a bucket, that is, in case the bucket runs straight with that speed. TW has them a t a very good price and you get free shipping also. Sorry to say that in that price range Daiwa beats Shimano by far.

If what you want is a crankbait reel then I would seriously consider saving my money and getting a Calcutta 50, it 's built like a tank, reels in slow and powerful, doesn 't weight much ( 7.9 ) oz, good drag, good bearings, meant to last for years.

This is the perfect time of the year to get some real bargains in reels (unless you just gotta have a Shimano). BPS has a bunch of their reels on sale and our local big sporting good stores have some big markdowns on reels which are probably being discontinued or updated for next year. I recently picked up two Daiwa TD Advantage HST's which were regular priced at $139 for $69.

Raul,

This is the $60 reel he is talking about:

Yeah Kent, I know it, looks kool but got lotz of plastik and the magnetic braking is so-so, besides that, just a little dirt on the external adjustment and the push lever dial locks up when it grinds against the sideplate.

The Procaster PR100 is a better reel.  ;)

I am SURE you are right. I bought the Coriolis back when I thought all I needed for striper fishing (drifting) was line storage since I would not be casting with the reel- WRONG! The reel was not strong enough to fish...Period!

I would also not go with that reel.  Save up to get at least a Cardiff.  It has a gear ratio that is suitable for crankbaits.  This is also the reel I use for tossing crankbaits. And despite having a curado D DHSV, I STILL PREFER to toss crankbaits with my cardiff.  It just feels better during the retirve.  Don't get me wrong, the Curado is more than capable, but I prefer the line recovery rate of my cardiff.  To me, it seems the fish like it better too.

That procaster does sound sweet though. I think I might get one for my little girl. ;)
