What's in your reel collection?

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 used to have a mix of Daiwa, Shimano, Abu, and BPS reels. At some point I decided that I like the feel and braking of Daiwa reels over all others and slowly switched. My want list does include a Shimano Stella and Shimano Conquest.



Same here. I realized I like the way the Daiwa braking feels. I have a Shimano Stella 3000 and it is an amazing reel. It balances well on a light and sensitive medium light 7 foot rod that I have it paired with. The drag is strong and the reel is powerful and smooth. It is a dream setup that has performed flawlessly in every way. Although, I don't use it often since I prefer bait casters.

Some of these reel lists are amazing.

Started with Quantum reels. Moved to Shimano, then Lew's now trying Diawa's. Switched from Quantum to Shimano because I was having issues with Quantum (they broke down too quickly, even with constant maintenance). Went to Shimano (100dsv's) then the E series. Was very happy with them until they cheapened them up (200G series) that's when I switched to Lews . I picked up a few new Chronarch 150's C14+.

When Daiwa came out with the 8.1 retrieve a picked up the Tatula type R and this year picked up 2 SV TWS 103s'. Haven't really used the 103's yet but if the work out, I will start changing over to them. Moved away from Lew's for 2 reason's 1) can't get them locally anymore, and 2) they have too many models in their lineup that are similar.

For spinning, I like the Shimano C14+ followed by the Symetre (newer black versions). I also have 2 Pfleuger Supremes xt's that just keep going (both over 15 years old) and never had an issue with them. Only reason I don't get more is that they changed the model and jacked the price up. It is now double the price. At that price point a C14+ is not much more.

here is my list

Abu Garcia C4 Elite 6500
Daiwa Tatula Type-R 100Xs
Diawa Tatula SV TWS 103S (2)
Lews Speed Spool BB1 (3)
Lews Super Duty SD1SH

Daiwa Aird (2)
Mitchell 300X Gold 3000
Pflueger Supreme XT 30 (2)
