Whats Your Most Favorite And Loved Reel


Recommended Posts

Everyone has at least one favorite reel that never gets left at home.

I thought it might be fun and informative to know what every ones best and most loved reel is.

Mine is a shimano stradic 6000FG, I’ve had it for 10 years and I find it excellent to use and easy to service. It has handled everything from bream up to small tuna.

Reason I ask is I’m looking to add another quality reel to my arsenal, and I’m looking for ideas rather than get another stradic. i havn't been in the market for a reel for some time and don't know what is good and what is crap. Is the 2006 Okuma VS 30 a good one?

My stradic 4000 with 10lb fins and the spare aluminium spool with 20lb bionic. If I was only allowed 1 reel for a round Oz trip then this would be it. Can be used for just about anything.
