As a full time fishing guide, outdoor writer, seminar speaker and tournament angler; I’ve seen quite a few spinning reels. Day in and day out, I fish with spinning reels and my clients use them too. When I look for a spinning reel, I look for the one that has a good price and built well enough to last through a long day of a guided fishing trip or a super long day of a tournament. Over the years of fishing, I’ve found that you get what you pay for in any fishing tackle, but who wants to pay “too much” for tackle; no one! You want a spinning reel that will stay smooth and have good smooth/strong drag season after season; right? If this sounds like the reel you are looking for give the PENN Battle II line a try.
Part of the reason, I don’t fish spinning reels, is they have some inherent issues that I don’t face as much with baitcasting equipment. However this new generation of Revo spinning reels from have minimized the spinning reel issues I’ve had in the past.
