Are they good reels?
I used one for snook fishing last week and it was amazing! It's more like a torque than a 4/0! I'm not talking about the little snook you see Rowland Matrin catch in Jupitter Inlet, I'm talking about big, fat, full of eggs, snook. I muscled a big 15# out from under the pier with ease!
I have an Avet MXL setup that I reeally like. But I feel a Baja Special will be a step up.
Do you think it is worth the money for me to give up the MXL?
Love the opinions!
As you have discovered, the 113HN Baja Special is an incredible reel, and not at all like a "4/0" internally.
Upgraded gears, upgraded drag, more ball-bearings, upgraded handle/knob, upgraded frame, reversible harness lugs, disconnecting pinion gear for better freespool and casting, even a choice of orientating the gearbox "forward" or "rearward".
Many anglers still are not aware how good it really is for many different kinds of fishing.
Ditto. It's a great reel. We just jigged up a 60# ling cod on a Baja Special last week in Elfin Cove.
I am planning on using the 113HN with braid for my surf sharking rod . . .I can see it is going to be my go to reel. Or should I say reels. . .
