Shimano Tranx 300/301 or Daiwa Lexa 300HD or Lexa Winn 300?

I'm leaning more towards the 301 Tranx, just not sure of the 2 Daiwas.

What's your call? Performance, palmability, casting?

I'll be using for swimbaits mostly. And if I get myself out there, ocean fishing. I prefer paddle handle than power handle.

Origin TX-Left Hand

I'm waiting to get this reel in March, it's on order.

I am inquiring if a reel handle like the one on the Concept A or in trick shop will be available in left hand. Or how do I go about getting a Concept A left hand reel handle and will it work/fit on the Origin TX left hand reel?

Calcutta 50/51 Reel Seat Rivets, Need Help

A few weeks ago, I though the reel seat on my Calcutta 51; the ends were narrow that when I mounted on a casting rod, it would have movement. I finally found out that the 2 rivets holding the reel seat onto the reel are actually what are loose. Just so much that when I mount on a rod, you can move t...

Shimano 50/51 Calcutta Owners, Reel Seat Question

I have the Calcutta 51 and I am having issues of wobble when I mount the Calcutta to any casting rods I own. Really annoying when reeling. Or is there a way to add shims to the reel seat area to get rid of the wobble? Do you own a rod that the Caluttar 50/51 won't wobble on? A couple rods, it's a bi...

Okuma Guide Select, 7'6" H, 1-5 Oz lures.

Daiwa Lexa 300 Type HD For Swimbaits?

Would this be a good all around reel for s-waver 168, 6" Hudd? I know it's a faster gear ratio, any of you use it for freshwater swimbaits?

Wiebe Reel Seat? After Market Copies?

Just wondering if such a thing exist. 

I'm looking for a reel seat that the reel sits low. I have an older Daiwa Light & Tough rod that the reel sits lower. 

I have a couple round reels that I prefer the reel seat to be as low as possible. 

Any help or advice?

Lew's Pro G TPG1HL OR 13 Fishing Concept A (left hand)

Help decide which of these reels to get next. $20 difference is ok.

Who owns either and how well are they working, etc?

I own a couple Lew's reels but no 13 Fishing.

Re: Shimano Curado 201 Spool Question

Ah I forgot to say, it is the B series.

So spools are not interchangeable?

Shimano Curado 201 Spool Question

Looking to buying a Curado 201 reel. Will a Curado 201BSF spool fit and work on a regular Curado 201?

I forgot, what was the main difference of a regular Curado 201 and Curado 201BSF?

Shimano Curado 70/71 Or 13 Fishing Concept A

I like both reels, just can't decide which to get.

Which one palms better and better overall performance?

Difference in price is $20
