Newer Reels

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.

Honestly, until I started grabbing Fuegos, I hated the physical dimensions of Daiwa and hated Magforce. I am sold on these Fuegos and aim to try a Tat CT or even go higher in the food chain. Now, when I hold a Curado, up to an including the I models, they're uncomfortable. I've had 70s, 100s and 200s. The only ones I liked how they felt were the old, green 100s. The cast control wasn't nearly what I get with my current reels. I feel like I'm rambling, but it is what it is.

I had never spent much time with it. Now, give me Magforce Z, or even V over the SVS system.
