Fishermen are on a perpetual search for the perfect reel.
One that casts farther, retrieves faster and is virtually bullet-proof.
For those shopping for their next reel, there's no shortage of $300-plus reels that can do it all without compromise. However, for those of us on a budget, we must have value-priced performance.
The good news is there are plenty of baitcast reel options on the market for those wanting to get the most bang of their money.

Abu Garcia's Revo X, Lew's Mach Crush Speed Spool SLP, Quantum Smoke S3, Cabela's Arachnid, Shimano Curado 200K, BPS Johnny Morris CarbonLite 2.0, 13 Fishing's Concept Z, and Daiwa's Lexa WN 300
