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 swear by my Curados, but one of these as a gift last year and I love it. Still use it regularly.

Academy will have good rod/reel combos for sale every now and then. Got the Abu Blu Max for 39.99 and its a solid reel for crank bait or rattle trap. My friend bought a silver series the other day for pretty cheap. Just gotta catch it right.

Everybody says that it is a great reel but I had a lot of problems with mine. I ended up having to bring it back.

My 3 must have come from a different run. Zero issues. Two get fished really hard. Really love the quick detach left cover. Shoot some reel magic up in there and they cast farther than anything I've used in 35ish years of using baitcasters.

I used 2 of these reels about a month ago when I didn't have my setups with me, and I was extremely impressed.
