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.

I owned Daiwa for BFS and medium setup, but for heavy lure /big bait setup I go for shimano due to its simplicity on design and adjustment. Calcutta 400 (jdm version of 400D) really impressed me, really hard to backlash with this reel even though I set tension cap to the point of massive spool overruns. Check my review video
