HELLO EVERYONE. i curious to know what is you one favorite reel , only one of choice prefer salt water.


as for me , its the torque 200, im so in press with it, could not believe the distance it can give , the high speed gearing and the impressive color and the smooth grip ( handle )

i would rate this reel as my first to go for jig casting, just love um.


how about you guys.

For balls-to-the-walls stroke casting for distance, I'd have to say my 40+ year-old Jigmaster--especially since Matt's reconditioning made it run even better than new.

Now...it's the SX-2 before it was the Newell 220
they remind me of a freshwater mini the Abu 1500that i once caught a 60 lb tarpon on 8lb did chase it...if you want to catch or try to big fish...put the SX out with four other 30-50 and troll...last winte/spring bahamas...they were partial to the SX rod

Wow, any size tarpon on 8# is great, IMO!

Noticing your first post, happy to say welcome aboard!

Thanks for the welcome...I should elaborate on the technique...in the TOTO off andros...25 footer..got a couple of dolphin and one wahoo...after three hours of stern gazing...put a Long A on the SX well at the speed it would not stay down so picked up the rod and proceeded to drop back more line but held the rod...it poped up again so i droped the tip and a hit 20-30 wahoo...what a great fish...continued the technique...now toughest fish was 50-60 yellow fin same tech..it helped with the two speed...have lost a few not to the set up but to my errors...its filled with 50 izor/spect

My favorite reel is my purple MX 2. It's my dedicated Mexico reel with my matching purple Toad Tamer, given to me by my boss cause I caught him in a good mood. Both are purple and when ever I use them I rock the Pargo Lisa! To much fun.

but someday I need to learn how to use the 2 speed part of it. What a dumb girl I am! :-)

I know you guys are gonna laugh but please remember that i'm more of an inshore fisherman. My favorite is the Daiwa 153 HST. It'll catch about anything up to 20 pounds and i have 30 pound braid on it. Its my go to reel. I second that to my Daiwa Sealine 30 HSV. This one is my jigger and the other one is for swimbaits.

IMHO, I'd have to say any Avet reel. I have several of their reels, in all sizes and lines and I simply think they are THE BEST! They are well made, look nice, handle just about anything, and don't cost an arm and a leg. Oh, they're also made in the good 'ol USA, so we're not sending our greenbacks to the far east. A well made product! Smiler

My JX-2 is an awesome reel. Very smooth drag & 2 speed strokes the fish.

Depends on the type of trip I'm going on. I like a lot of reels depending on the line class.


If I had to pick just one I guess it'd be a ProGear 280 w/25#.

Old School Jigmaster converted to a 501 Newelled out with a speed handle . I killed more fish with that reel than any others that I have owned . I regret selling it and my baby Squidder when we left California .
