Anyone use Quantume Incyte or Shimano Sedona reels???

Question

tjwierz2

Trying to decide on 2 reels. 1 for Walleye one for casting bass/northern.

Looking at either the Shimano Sedona...or Quantum Incyte.

Both seem really smooooooth. Both $50.

Suggestions?

I have never used the Incyte, but I do know that Quantum makes a very quality reel...

I do own about 5 of the sedonas, maybe more, need to count them.. They have never failed. me. I use them for ice fishing, but have used them on my jig worm rod for bass too.

I am kind of a cheapskate, so I love Shimano Sedona's. They are not the worlds smoothest reels, and I am a backreeler so I never rely on the drag system (which I suspect is only adequate). I typically get 5 years out of one before it is retired to my panfish collection. That doesn't seem like a very long life from a reel, but ask Deitz how much I use spinning reels bass fishing.

Thanks Ray... I added a couple Quantum Incytes to the collection today. A 20F for walleye - and a 30F for pike. I figured its probably flipping a coin at this price point. So I went with the cooler name, and better looking reel I guess. grin.gif If I need something better, I'll step up to a Symytre.

Or if you like your Quantum, take a step or 2 up that ladder. i have a catylist and an Energy, and really like them both after a couple years of service. Too darn many shimanos out there...

I've got two Sedonas, one front drag and one rear drag. Both have worked well and seem to represent a good price vs. performance ratio.

If you want to step up, the Stradic spins pretty nice. ;\)

I would also think about the Symetre. I have 2 and love them. Also have a pflueger president and it is also a nice real.

The symetre runs around 70$ and the president about 60$

No problems with any of the choices mentioned so far it the post.

I bought a Pflueger President last year and it has turned into my favorite. Much nicer than compareable priced Shimano.

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

    • Rather_B_Fishing
      Are folks driving trucks out on Blue and/or Green yet? How thick is the ice now? Thanks.

      How thick is the ice on Blue now? Are people driving trucks out now? Same questions for Green lake.

      I’m not sure what all augers the clam extension fits. I know it fits ion because that’s what I use.. These things go right inside your drill and are adjustable from approximately 6 inches up to probably 14 to 16 inches, they work great. Take a look at them next time you see them in the store to see if they fit your auger. Mine stays on it all the time.
