Hi I am looking for suggestions on Spinning reels in the $100-$125 range. I am typically casting for Large and Smallmouth bass and Walleye. Looking for ultra smooth drag features and ability to make long casts with 1/8- 3/8 oz lures. I am casting finesse plastics, stick and lip-less cranks etc. Tight lines !!
Spinning Reel suggestions
Pfluger makes some awesome reels. I have some Presidents that are over 10 years old that are still like new. The Supremes are great also. The President runs around $60. I fish a lot and they have never let me down.
Okuma makes some awesome reels that are really smooth and less than $100 bucks. Look at the Epixor has 8 ball bearings, or the Inspira has 9 ball bearings. Both super smooth, smooth drag's less than $100 bucks retail, and will stand up to any of the other reels on the market.
Daiwa fuego. Easy choice
Very happy with Lews custom pro, can find deals on them, little over 100. Well made, good drag. Does not get as many bird nests as reverse is continuous.
