New BC to go with my avid? Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I was looking to get a new baitcaster with a budget no more than 170 (firm).  So far I was looking at the JDM Scorpion 1000, or possibly a Revo (not sure which model), This will match up with my 6'6" MH Fast rod.  Anyone have any suggestions?

I've heard great things about the revo's.  I went with a Curado 100.  $130 ish new on ebay.  With a budget of 170, you have some good choices.  Good Luck

Redlinerobert has a Chronarch on the "Flea Market" for $185, maybe he would take $170. Anyhow, be patient and keep your eye on that section of the Forum, there are some GREAT deals there quite often.

Otherwise, the JDM Scorpion would be an excellent choice!

(I also like the Curado CU100D).

So the scorpion is out of the question?

You can go two ways:

1.- Go with the bling and get a Scorpion 1000 ( which is a great reel )

2.- Go with Delo 's and get a Curado 100D ( which is a better reel than the Scorpion ) for $165 plus free shipping.

I just bought the same rod that you have.  As of right now I am planning on putting a Team Daiwa advantage super tuned.  I held one last weekend and it felt absolutely awesome.  They go for $159 retail,ledd on ebay

You can't go wrong with the Revo SX or SC.

Revo SC > SX.  I have both and the there is no discernible difference in performance.  The SC has two fewer bearings, but it doesn't degrade performance at all.  SC is the best Revo value out there right now, IMHO.
