Which Reel Would You Pick

Recommended Posts

If you had to pick ones of these cars which would it be toyota camry, mercedes e350, acura ts, ford escape, buick rendezvous and jeep grand cherokee.

Just listing out a bunch of reels is pointless. What application are you looking to use them for? Depending on your answer will determine what reel you should buy. Just off of your list, the Chronarch is the top reel, but also over $50 more than any other one listed.

Actually they are all 200 bucks expecxt for the lews n curado which are cheaper.its an all purpose reel I'm looking forusing baits from 1/4oz to 3/8oz.if u have a different reel for every application then more power to you but I find that highly unlikey amd pointless so please don't bother saying I need 3 of them to fish these patterns.a

Smoke 100 for me but that is a personal preference.

I'd be looking for a spinning setup for those :)

A curado 51 if you can find one for around $100 would be a great deal too...

I'd go with the smoke, I love Quantum. They cast smoothly, the drag is great, and they're easy to use. You don't have to take the sideplate off to change your braking and it feels great in your hand.

Honestly, any of those reels would do what you need. They are all high-quality products, backed by a solid manufacturer's warranty and (with proper maintenance) should give you years of service.

BUT, what works for me (or anyone else on the forum) might not be the best for you. The best way to decide is to go to a store and handle the reels yourself. Mount them on your rod and see how each one balances, how they feel in your hand, etc., and decide which one feels the best to YOU.

What about the Pinnacle Optimus XLT? That is a great reel from what I've read. I'm saving my clams for one. Hopefully I'll have one by the spring. It's tough when all of my money goes towards the mortgage.

I agree 100% with Tom.

I would take the rod that I intended to use with the reel. Then mount each reel on the rod to see what the system would feel like with each reel and make my final choice.

Good Luck & Tight Lines! :fishing1:
