Question about crankbait reel

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a inexpensive reel just soley for crankbaits. It doesnt have to high end or brand name just want something that has the lower speed gears and can be used without tearing up the first time used. Is there anybody out there that knows of the hidden gems for cranking. Used is ok too, Can be an older model too, just give some ideas

David Fritts Signature Series crankin' reel. These are discontinued now but you can find them on eBay.

Since I'm practically a new member the site won't let me post a link to one of the reels on eBay until I've posted 10-messages without links.

Just search "David Fritts" on eBay and a few of these reels will pop up.

The slow-gear ratio, cheap price, and reliable performance makes this reel a no-brainer, especially for crankbait fishing.  ;)

I had a David Fritts reel and I really liked it. It would cast a mile and it made cranking a DD22 feel like reeling in slack line.

You should also check out the bass pro pro qualifier reel also. It comes in a 4.7:1 and 5.4:1 gear ratio.

I use BPS Extreme and Pro Qualifier baitcasting reels. Either one will do a good job for you. For a few dollars more the PQ is a much smoother reel. It has both centrifugal and magnetic braking, making casting a joy.
