Best Spinning Reel

Recommended Posts

In your honest opinions what is the best bang for the buck when it comes to spinning reels

****EDIT*****

Price range is around $100 if that matters, but it isnt the question  :(

"Best" is highly subjective as there are alot of great reels out there. Here are my "favorites"

Pflueger Supreme $99

Daiwa Exceler $69

Pflueger President $59

Everyone has their "favorites" and that's the response you will ALWAYS get with a "What is best?" question.

I fish Shimano reels.   ::(

JMHO

A discontinued Stardic ($99). Dick's Sporting Goods in my neck of the woods still had a couple last week.

Next would be the Symetre...

I've been using my new Pflueger Supreme and President the last two outings and couldn't be happier. Both cast great and are buttery smooth on the retrieve! IMO:o)

I have a Sahara, nice reel for $60, just bought the supreme from Pflueger, but haven't used it yet.  Seems like an awesome reel, smooth, super light, and a magnesium reel for under $500!

I fish a variety of reels on different rods. My favorite combo (recently purchased) is a shimano cumara/sustain FE, and I would switch all of my reels to those but it's just a bit out of my price range. The one I have was a graduation present. I have daiwa capricorns, shimano stradics, pflueger supreme's and presidents, quantum tour and others. In my opinion the Pflueger supreme is an excellent buy for 99 dollars, and the bass pro shops jonny morris signature spinning reel for 99 is also a great reel. Shimano makes the best high end reels and if at all possible I would recommend saving up and buying one of the new stradics or stretching it for the sustain FE, you won't regret it.

I prefer my Exceler to my Stradic FH.  It's not as smooth, but consistently outcasts and its line management is as good, if not better.

If I were to buy another Exceler TODAY, I would probably look at the Cabelas Prodigy which is still on sale for $79.

No one mentioned you can get the Pflueger Medalist right now from Cabela's for $60, same price as the President. Aluminum body, 10 bearings, should be very smooth. I have the President that I bought this past spring and it's very nice, but for the same money I'd have gotten the Medalist back then if it was that low but at the time it was $80 for one reel and I was buying two that day.

Anyway, Pflueger, Pflueger, Pflueger, Pflueger..........Pflueger.....and Pflueger some more. Nuff said. :(

If the question is "what is the best"  I think you have to look way up higher on the price scale.  Fish a Steez, which I own, or a stella like RW, and there is simply no way an educated hand will not feel the smoothness. No loose fittings, no extra play, no vibration etc.  These are subtle characteristics that separate the "best"

If the quesiton is "best bang for the buck"  I still have not found a better value than the shimano symetre.  Outstanding reel for the $$
