Spinning reels

Recommended Posts

Reccomendations wanted for spinning reels, I have two 7 foot rods, medium and medium light. Planning on lake fishing with a canoe and a jon boat this spring, bass obviously being the main objective. Any advice would be welcome.

Daiwa's Exceler is also a great performer at <$70.

Consider the Pflueger Trion, President or Supreme.

I own the Trion and the Supreme, both outstanding reels.

Do a Google search for reviews, there's a lot of them out there, almost all positive.

I really like anything Quantum but Shimano's and Diawa's are not bad either.

I tried the daiwa tierra, it was nice but i think i had a defective one (it was smooth but when there was weight on the line ie: fish or lure it made clicking noises).  I then went with a shimano saros 3000, absolutely love it by the way. Dont know your price range but the saros has my vote hands down.

I really like Daiwa spinning reels. The Exceler is hard to beat for the price. Other then that get a Tierra or an Advantage.

Any Shimano from Sahara and up.

Cardinal 500, 700, 800

Pflueger president or supreme

      I have to agree, the cardinals are pretty solid reels, I have a Pfluger Medalist now, I really like it, but it is pretty heavy, so I would have to recomend the Cardinal unless you really want a good forearm workout.

What size do you guys like for the Pflueger Supreme?

I prefer the 8030 for 6'6 rods....or lighter rods.....I have an 8030 on my Loomis SHR 821.

8030 on Rogue 6'6 M

I'd like to get the Loomis 7 4" Bronzeback, and for that rod I would go with 8035.

You don't need a big reel, and to me, the smaller reels feel better in use.
