Senko reel

Recommended Posts

I use a Daiwa Magforce as a senko reel. Until recently it started giving me problems. The twitching bar clicks up and down on retrieve by itself. It still works, but it's super annoying. Anyway I am thinking of getting either an orra sx, revo s, or another revo sx. I was just wondering what reels you guys use for senkos. I don't really need recommendations I just want to know the reels ya'll use.

About 3 or 4 years ago I started using MH spinning gear with 20/6 Power Pro braid for Senkos and all soft plastics (Gary Yamamoto suggested this in an article on Senko fishing).

I use a Shimano Symetre reel, but am considering the Abu Soron STX for next year.

I don't have a Senko dedicated reel, but may use a Calcutta, Chronarch, Curado, BPS Extreme, Quantum Pro , Ambassadeur 4600, Revo SX, Abu Silver Max, or any of the others I have depending on which is not being used for some other presentation.

I have been fishing weightless 3.5" senko's wacky style all summer on a 6'6MH Falcon rod, and a BPS Pro Lite Finesse baitcaster.

The reel really is perfect for finesse applications or other light weight presentations.

I actually use a pflueger supreme xt spinning reel. i feel like fishing lures like senkos with a casting rod it too difficult. I also like ifshing light line and actually fighting te fish instead of horsing them in  :D

if you use real yamasenkos they will get torn up fast using the average baitcaster unless you have something like a steez , sol, or daiwa pixy that will cast light stuff with ease. Using a spinning reel seems to put less torque on the worm when your casting it. I was using one of my zillions to throw senkos but now I use my sol spinning reel . That zillion seems to tear them up before long. You cant go wrong with a decent spinning reel to throw senkos. I think the rod is more important to consider then the reel when it comes to senkos. I use my 7'2 crucial drop shot rod. Just my 2 cents.

My preference for a weightless presentation is

spinning gear, Shimano 2500 series reel. Specifically:

St. Croix Legend Elite ES70MF/ Shimano Stella 2500FD/

#6 Yo-Zuri Hybrid/ Gamakatsu 4/0 EWG Offset Worm

Hook.

The Shimano Curado 200E7's new home will be on a GLX MBR783C for spinnerbaits.  If I decide to upgrade the 200E7 on that rod, then it's next stop will be for sale and you'll be the first person I contact.
