Bait casting reel

Recommended Posts

fishdaddy

I'm looking at buying a bait caster. I'll be using it mainly for heavy cover. I know high speed is way to go. What reels do you recommend? Or don't? Id like to spend less than $150.

Thanks and good fishing!

I'm pretty sure someone else will say this too. I'd recommend you the Shimano Curado for $150:

Curados are great for throwing weightless jigs/lures.

-OR-

Shimano Citica E for $120 or less on Ebay. I heard the newer Citica G's are not as great of quality as the E series. I have 2 of the Citica E's and they have not failed on me yet. I mainly use them for Flipping heavy cover and cranking. I have yet to use the Curado, but a friend from Joe's Sporting Goods recommends them over the Citica.

These are just my 2 cents. I personally, am a huge Shimano fan. I made the switch from Quantum and never looked back.

I am a REVO man... I think Dietz is running a Shimano cult grin

I have used Abu Garcia Revos and I love them, I have many friends that use Shimano and they love the hell out of them. I think it is what you are used to.

I will throw this out there BPS offers a PRO Qualifier for $99.99, I picked one up this year and was super impressed! It has really high ratings on the site. It is said that it is a Revo frame and everything but has the BPS name on it. Might be worth a look since you could get almost 2 reels for the price of the other reels at $169.99, just my opinion.
