Getting my first baitcaster reel

Recommended Posts

Curado CU200E7 ~ $150 or Core 50Mg7 ~ $290.

I have recently bought both of these reels,

NIB, at these prices on our Flea Market.

+1 Definitely, go with the Shimano Core 50mg7 if you can. I own one and it is by far my favorite reel.

Holy schnikeys!  That's a great price range for a first baitcaster.  You will not be disappointed with any TD's or Shimano's in that range.  Good luck running from the bait monkey.

Get a Revo STX($199) or a Revo S (100-129 depending on where you look)..  They give you the best bang for your buck IMO...

Don't shy away from a shimano either.. there is a billion guys on this forum who love them

+2 on those suggestions.  I have both reels and could not be happier.

Later, ;)

You cant go wrong with a shimano.  Ive got a few curados and love them.  Looking to get a core 50mg just dont have the money right now.  I have heard good things about the revo line as well. havent tried any though. You can find some good deals on last years model of the premier out there

For $300 you can get 2 Citica's  off Ebay shipped and have $100 left over to buy another casting rod.

Than you have two nice setups to learn on.

Dixon,  I assume you bought this rod for crankbaits.  If you want to run deep divers get the Revo Winch for sure.  If you want more of an all around, the Revo STX 6.4 to 1 gets my vote.

I like the revos and the curados.I would say go to a tackle dealer that stocks several types of reels and see how each one feels maybe try them on a rod like you have.I bought a Revo S not so long ago and it was agreat starter real for about a hundo$Of course my local Gander Mountain just had the Daiwa Steez 103

for under $300 dollars (brand new but last years model).This would be the nicest Reel for you

It could be the older Tour Edition PT KVD spinnerbait rod (PTC6106FKV). If so, it's an excellent rod and a heck of a bargain @ $80 on Ebay. I have one paired with a Curado 200e7 and couldn't be happier with the combo.
