Best baitcaster under $100



Looking to get a cheaper reel that will not be used a lot. Any suggestions for one under $100?

Some will disagree, but I love this one.


Been using them for years.

I've got 3 of them. One was my dad's one was my grandpa's.

Had to take them apart from time to time but they still work.

Yep, just gotta keep em good and cleaned. I've caught everything from catfish in the spillway to bull reds in venice with that damn 4600. I love that thing.

You can usually find a new Abu Garcia Revo S for right around $100 with free shipping on eBay. That's what I would buy.

I'm kinda partial to the Bass Pro shops extreme series. I've got three and they all work just as well as anything I've ever thrown.

I love the ambassadors. I have one and it was actually my very first baitcaster.

And to answer the OP, I recently purchased a BPS Bionic Plus and I really like it so far, plus I think it is on sale now
