Need a good spinning reel

Recommended Posts

I just pulled the trigger on a dx702sf and now need to start looking at what spinning reel I want to mount on it. I don't want to spend more than 200. I'm going to probably put 6-8lb flouro on it. Thanks guys!

Save $100 and pick up the Pflueger Supreme. Great reel, very light, fast.

I'm curious what the XT version gets you over the regular Supreme....Can't go wrong with either.

I've heard good things about the Abu Soron STX also.

Most Daiwa's are a safe bet, and another way to save some $$.

Or get a Shimano Symetre. Great reel for $100.

I just don't care for Pflueger. Something about the name just makes me want to avoid it.

Interesting statement.

Everyone I know that has purchased the new

Stradic 2500CI4 is impressed. My initial reaction

is that the reel seems comparable to the Stella

2500FD at about 1/3 the cost!

I have the Shimano Sahara and it's a very good reel and I also have the New(as of last year) Quantum Catalyst PTI-B20. I haven't fished the Quantum the the Sahara held it's own for a year of fishing and is a great reel in the under $100 range. The Symetre is also a great value as well. My brother has the Soron and loves it

Stradic CI4

I think this is the reel I'm leaning towards. Just wondering if there were any others out there that would be a great match for the Champion Extreme.

For less than 200 a stradic fi is a winner, better handle than the c-14 imo.  Since I bought my first supreme, I now have 3, 2 fresh 1 saltwater, my stradic fi collects dust and I think the stradic is terrific, that says how I feel about the supreme, no advantage to the xt.

I don't think you need to spend more than a 100 for a freshwater spinning reel, spend more and you are the fish being reeled in.

I like you're thinking. It's just for a nice 300 dollar rod I feel like I need to mount something good on it. I wish those Supreme's didn't have Pflueger across it in big letters. I think it's more of a problem with the P and F. They just shouldn't go together like that. And the whole ueg. I guess I'll have to go to the local tackle shop and check some out to see what I like.

I have a few spinning reels in my arsenal that I only use about 25% of the time. I haven't been too impressed with Shimano and especially Quantum's KVD spinning reels under $100. Shimano Symetres and Pflueger Presidents are great reels! For the money though, I'd go with BPS Johnny Morris line. I just bought one and I can feel a huge difference in quality and the price is under $70. Good luck!

Yep! I just put a brand new one up in the flea market that's in your price range!! :D

Haha figures. I'm on a part time job working almost 15 hours a week and still have gas and everything else to pay for so it'll be about a month before I can put enough money to the side for one now since I just dropped almost 300 on that rod. If you put that up earlier I would've bought that first and got the rod later! I'm thinking you should keep it for about a month and let the box collect a little dust then I'll take it off your hands! ;D

Edit: Scratch that Valentines Day is around the corner.  ::) Make that 2 months.

As far as spinning reels,Daiwa leads the pack. Line management alone is enough reason to go with a Daiwa.

I will be checking out some Daiwas too. I have been curious about some of the higher end Daiwas. I've used lower end ones and for the money were great reels. I guess I'll just have to see which one feels the best maybe the local little shop will let me mount a couple on my new baby.

I am a fan of the Stradics. It is everything I would want in a reel. Loved the feel of the Sol, but sold them both and picked up Stradic MgFB. It didn't pick up enough line for me and I figured I could make a few bucks by selling them and getting the Stradic.  :D

Shimano Stradic 2500fi is one of the finest reels I have ever owned. Silent, smooth as butter, great grips and drag. OY YA on E-bay has these reels brand new shipped for 127$ you will not be disappointed if this is what you choose.
