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.

I have uses Shimano's in the past and had problems with the drag. Switched to Pfluerger's and couldn't be happier!!

Good Luck!

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
