I got a new rod. It's a Fenwick Eagle, 7', and it has pretty fast action. It should be killer for smallmouth bass and some finesse fishing. I can;t wait to use it.

I decided to save money and clean some old reels. Here's what I found out - some of the middle of the line Cabela's reels are durable, but impossible to take apart without breaking them. So I guess I need a new reel after all!

Contemplating Shimano Core50mg  vs Daiwa Zillion vs Shimano Chronarch 50mg....would not go with any other brand....it gets expensive when you get really really hooked i guess...still cheaper than golf....

Team RippnLipz

Before you go and buy the Core 50mg. Think about getting the Citica or even better the Curado

i got the Shimano Chronarch 101B Left Handed Retrieve...brand NEW!!(Discontined Model)  all aluminum, NO  PLASTIC WhatsoEver.... unlike the Curado E series...they sure dont make em like they use to...Dude I checked out a Curado E series at Cabelas...thing had more plastic on it than Hollywood...

AD37 .....

Drove up to Connecitcut to visit family.... 6inches of snow still on the Ground...damn this winter sucked up here.

i have a few Curados already 300,301DSV & 200, 201 DHSV( a lil heavy b/c all ALUMINUM, no plastic)  they kick ass...wanted to go smaller this time ..Shimano, maybe DAIWA is only baitcaster id buy, I have a REVO S, its ok, (feels weird, very wobbly, some plastic parts) also have a  REVO pro max (GARBAGE, died after 2 trips, now a door holder)  the feel of a shimano is like driving an exotic car...Curado E series didnt feel as strong, lots of plastic aka fiberglass...

Revo premier is supposedly the lightest baitcaster right now....6.7 oz!!  Still think AbuGarcia is behind on aesthetics and features on its reels...they all look the same...from silver max to Premier..their plastic handle grips all the same, small handle bars...body shape/contour is all the same...only diff is gears and color...Shimano is like Mercedes Benz.   .ABU = FORD..ha ha..

Did you see those new Koppers Golden Shiner/Gizard Shad lipless cranks or the new Koppers Frogs?? Talk about life-like...had to grab some them....my wallet took a hit at DICKS yesterday..still cheaper than GOLF..

Alright , i am looking for river spinning  reel , what do you think of the Daiwa tournament SS series? i see it has very good reviews, i want an iron maiden that will last awhile, don't need fancy or flashy, but solid ,smooth long lasting. Just got a new rod, 7' Celilo Okuma, 2 peice, will let you know, it is for 2-10lb line, what about a far casting reel , any good Med lite or lite reels to cast across the river ? after i set this up , then will find a baitcaster for some old rods that my Dad used to fish with, like a Wonder rod , they seem good , so i will try them out for Bass,and heavier fish. Have Fun, this week is supposed to be perfect moon conditions, will expect some good pics shared here, AJ

I got a Browning Citori flip & pitch reel with a 7' MH shimano voltaeus rod. The citori is the best reel I have ever owned, the brake system is awesome, smooth casting and reeling. I was casting into 25mph winds last week and didn't have any issues. With my old baitcasters that would have been a nightmare. BPS was having a sale on them back in early Feb. I got mine for 69.99. If your looking for an awesome reel that won't drain your kids college funds, this is it.

20% off coupon, makes the stx Revo 159.00 ! plus ship to my door 10.59 approx,

cheapest good reel deal i could find, and this reel i saw catch 9 bass outta the creek that backed up from the lake recently,(ok he was using green soft baits, and bright Crawdads from BPS, also 

some guy was Bowing for Gars that is right Bow shooting ! he said he shot one wider than his Van! lol this is off a small bridge by the way on a two lane , (barely), paved road 10mins or so from our place. So much rain, brought the fish closer to home , i ain't complaining!  Ok what did i catch, one BAss on my light spinning outfit with 4lb line, not bad , the bass was 3lbs+ over pan sized, my pole bent way over thought i would break it!

Just got a Shimano Curado 200E7 today. Love it!

just picked up a REVO SX WITH A SPEC ROD FROM FIELD AND STREAM. Casts farther and runs smoother than my curado and its cheaper.As far as the spec series rods, I think they are the best for the money specialty rods(lure specific). $169 for the reel $60 for the rod.yes you can get the reel cheaper but I dont buy reels online unless its a really good deal.

Dennis Huskins

That's a great price for a high end rod and I certainly trust your knowledge base. I'll see if they have a spinning rod I like.

Posted by Dennis Huskins Elite Member over 6 years ago - Report Abuse

Felipe Micklon

returned the revo. great reel but with that much speed in the bearings you really need a centrifugal brake to control the backlash. plus found out it was the early version.
