thanks for the help - one more question

Recommended Posts

Tanks for the help on the spinning reel - I have one more question and it's probably a stupid one but here goes.  I think I have settled on the Abu Garcia Soron but in searching there is a STX20, STX40, STX60.  Can someone tell me what the difference is?  They are all priced within $15-20 of each other, I just want to make sure I purchase the right one.  Thanks guys - I truly appreciate your help!!

The difference is the size of the reel (spool). For most bass fishing applications, the 20 size should serve you well.

Maybe I'm bias cuz I was fishing ultralight equipment when I quit 23 years ago, but the bigger spinning reels are more than I like. Which is why I went to baitcasters when I got back into fishing this year. Plus I wanted BASS gear, not just ultralight gear. So I agree with everyone else. Go the 20 size. Also I think you made an excellent choice based on previous research. I need to pick up a couple new spinning reels to replace some of my very old gear. The Soron will be one of them.

Stx 20 ,14# max drag perfect for most freshwater

Stx 40, 22# max drag, great for inshore saltwater

Stx 60  30# max drag, used offshore for kingfish

As mentioned more line capacity as you work up in size.

I own all 3 sizes, no longer interested in any other brand.

Give ya a tip, if you buy a 20, order from Pure Fishing for $10 a size 40 handle to replace the 20, you will thank me.

I agree that the 20 size would be perfect
