With money no issue which reel do you choose

Recommended Posts

Just wondering.  My head spins when I look at what is available.  Just wondered what everyone else thought.

I am torn between the MG, Zillion, and Premier.

Well I voted for the MG, mostly because it's on clearance.

The Sol is up there but no Fuego? Where's the Steez? I voted for the STX, only cause I like em. Best casting reel as far as fit in my hand that I have come across so far. Would love to give a Steez a wack though, just cant rationalize that kind of coin

Shimano Aldebaran or Daiwa Steez

Took the words out of my mouth. I'm really torn on this one....even though I generally lean more towards Daiwa than Shimano; I'm going to say Mg50/Aldebaran on this one. I like the palmability of my TD-Z's better than my steez reels, and a new centrifugal-braked version of the TD-Z is a great idea. Kudos to Shimano!

I already have the magnetic version of the Aldebaran...

I've fished with a couple higher end Daiwas, and a Skeet Reese Revo.  I really love the Zillion I fished with, even if the handle was on the wrong side.  If I had enough money to get one, that would probably be my first choice.  That or a Shimano Curado, since I've never tried Shimano and would like to.

I'm sold on the Zillion. A few months ago I owned no Daiwas. Now I own two Fuegos and three Zillions. The Zillion is my favorite reel. I'm lucky in that some of my friends are Shimano enthusiasts, others appeal to other brands. And I also get to fish with a tackle dealer that always has somthing new to try. So I've had the opportunity to try several different rods and reels. So far, nothing has impressed me like the Zillion. The combination of weight, feel, smoothness, quality of construction and performance with a wide range ot lure weights is hard to beat.

STEEZ

I've got 5 and I sleep with them every night. I've used Stellas (great reels) and every Abu and Quantum imaginable. Nothing even comes close, IMO, to STEEZ in quality. Only complaint would be the physical size but I have small hands so I love them. A buddy I fish with, can't hold them...complains they are too small.

The Pflueger Patriarch is doing just about everything I need in a reel although I could be convinced to test drive a Calais.

Round: Shimano Conquest (DC or non)

Low Pro: Shimano Aldebaran, Chronarch 50/51Mg or Daiwa Steez

..........with money no issue of course. :)
