Hey guys, I am building a rod for a buddy of mine as a wedding gift and I want a reel to compliment it. It will be a Rod built around deep diving crankbaits like the 6xd. He likes Shimano reels, what reel is the best for handling those big, hard pulling baits?
A Curado 200I PG would be a nice fit or the recently discontinued Chronarch 200E5 would make a nice reel for cranking also. If you want to spoil him in terms of the reel you could explore a Calcutta Conquest 100/200 they are superior crank bait reels. Last option would be a Calcutta TEDC 100 or 200 size. Regret selling these reels very nice and might be a good alternative.
