Spinning Reel Spool Size

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy the Daiwa Regal XiA spinning reel. It's been ages since I bought a spinning reel and cannot remember what spool size is bigger smaller etc. Any opinion on what would be the best all around size? It would be used for shaky head, drop shot, small plastics, ect. I think the sizes for the Regal are 1500, 2000, and 2500. Thanks

I've got a pair of the 2500's myself. I'd get that size of the 3 you listed (the larger of the three), if not bigger. Smaller number = smaller size.

The question is "what am I going to use it for?

For bass I think the 2000 is more than adequate especially in a low vegetation area, doubt if you would be spooled out from a lmb.

The 2500 would be a better choice for all around usage as it has more line capacity and twice the drag and would handle heavy cover better.

Both reels seem to be a bit on the heavy side but that would your preference, I'm sure it's a fine product.

I've used Regals for years. It's arbitrary, but I don't use anything larger than 8# on the 2000 size. For 10# mono and 15# braid I use 2500s. All other things equal, better line performance is gotten from larger spools. For bass fishing, line capacity shouldn't be an issue.
