Need help choosing bait caster

Recommended Posts

Hey do you guys have a recommendation for a reel that would work well with the 6'6" worm/jig MH rod xml rod (http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0053033122637a&type=product&cmCat=SEARCH_all_NYR&returnPage=search-results1.jsp&Ntk=Products&sort=all&Go.y=0&_D%3AhasJS=+&Nty=1&hasJS=true&nyr=1&Ne=2510&Ntt=xml+casting&N=3355&_D%3Asort=+&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fsearch%2Fsearch-box.jsp.form1&Go.x=0&_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1) from cabelas? I'm kinda on a tight budget so I'm looking for something under $100. Are the Cabela-branded reels any good? The warranties they have *sound* good but do they give you a hard time if you actually have an issue?

I need something that's good for a beginner. I had a BC for about a month before this (it ended up at the bottom of a lake) so I'm not a total newb but I did get backlash every now and then. And I think I'm going to use braided line this time instead of fluoro. Any suggestions or tips? Should i expect more backlash with braid?

The Cabelas Prodigy is a pretty good B/C and possibly still on sale for $75 normally $100. It's made by Daiwa and I actually have one myself with 20# Fireline Braid on it and it works just fine.

I just picked up the same rod as well and thought it was a MH but label said H and wrote Cabelas and they wrote back and said it is indeed a MH as stated on the blank and that the label was incorrect.

you will find suggestions for just about every reel that is out

there around your pricing point.
