WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPINNING REEL

Recommended Posts

I've never bought the more expensive models of spinning reels before, mainly because I don't use them as much.  Last winter I bought a Cabela's Prodigy (by Daiwa, Exceler I think) and I am blown away how freakin' smooth it is.  It became my favorite from the first cast this spring.  I consider it a bargain for the $65 I paid for it.  So, I still have not entered the upper branches of spinning reels but with performance like this I don't think I ever will.

My vote went to Daiwa on the poll!

My Daiwa Sol is an absolute joy to fish with. The drag is smooth as silk...blows away my Stradics..

The old or the new or both stradics?

Mine is the symetre. It is the most expensive spinning I have and the most I care to spend on a spinning reel.  Unlike casting reels, $79 buy a whole lot of spinning reel. ;) ;)

Okuma. I have had two of mine for five years and they are still a workhorse. You can't break them and they only cost around $70.

Both my Stradics are the old style.  I know they are in different price points, but I got the Sol off ebay for $130 brand new in the box.....

Wow! At that price I too would have been all over that.  Congrats of that steal of a deal. 8-)
