Budget spinning reel suggestions

Postby patk » Mon Mar 23, 2020 9:25 pm

I'm looking to get a reliable sturdy reel for my youngfella t ok use for spinning in the sea lures and light mackerel Pollack fishing. I remember some time back someone here spoke about a reel sure thing catch? Or something like that can't find through Google. Any recommendations welcome size wise 3000 to 5000. Thanks

Have survived 2 years so far on my kayak. I sprayed them with ACF50 at the start and I rinse them after each trip

To be honest, if you get an entry level reel from Shimano or Daiwa, and you mind it, you will be absolutely fine. I have a Shimano Exage for 4 or 5 years and the only maintenance I have ever given it is a good rinse in fresh water after every trip. It has never given a bit of trouble.
