Reel
« on: March 08, 2010, 07:41:00 PM »
I'm looking to buy another spinning reel soon. Does anyone have any recommendations ? It will be used mostly for trout and bass, but should be able to put up with the occasional kitty or carp.

Thanks   ##$%#113

Take a look at the Mitchell 300, It is a good durable all around spinning real.

I am a huge fan of the Quantum's.  I have had 2 Quantum snapshots for about 15 years or so and havnt had any problems and I have used them to catch everything from Suckers to Pike.  Most I ever had to do was relube them every couple years.

I have two old Garcia Mitchell 308's that I love.  I don't think they make them anymore.  I'm not sure it they are strong enough to handle a big cat or a carp, but I don't fish for those anyway.  Actually, I haven't gone fishing in 13 yrs.   @--0--0117

I have two Mitchell reels that I still use.
The one I purchased when I was 14 yrs. old. almost 40 yrs. ago. That should say something.

I've narrowed it down a little. Here's what I'm thinking:

Shimano
-Sonora
-Sedona
-Spirex
-Syncopate

Mitchell
-300xe
-Avocet II

Pfleuger
-Trion gx7
-President

Abu Garcia
-Cardinal 102
-Cardinal 105

And possibly the Okuma Trio Hybrid, just because it's on sale at GM.
It's hard to narrow further, can you guys help me ?  ##$%#1119
(feel free to add another reel to my list, if it tops these)

Thanks,
Scott

I've used Shimano for over thirty years. Great company that stands behing their product. The Spirex is a good reel for the money.

How can I further eliminate reels ? It's hard for me because 90% of these reels ar in blister packs and you can't spin them.

I'll save you the guess work, get one of each, Just like guns you can never have too many and the  ##$%#1115 really don't care. They are the anti's of the reel world.
