What's your favorite reel/spool combo

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

What's your favorite reel/spool combo

Postby SSS » Thu Jul 13, 2017 5:44 pm

The one you're having the most fun fishing with. My vote goes to an FX68 with an RCS1016 spool. Followed closely by an OG steez with the same spool.

Megabass IS71HL with Daiwa SLP Steez SV105 spool.
Megabass Lin10 with RCS 1012 spool.
Megabass Zonda 68L with SBF Spool (Special Bait Finesse)

Haven't tested the Daiwa SLP Steez SV105 spool on the Steez A yet. Has anyone have tested before ???

Thanks,
WW
