Finally spent over $50 on a reel. Pairing with a St Croix Mojo Bass Rod for Smallmouth fishing in rivers.
Finally spent more than $100 on a rod and decided it needed better than a Bass Pro $50 reel. Was immediately impressed with how much lighter the Daiwa Fuego was than the Bass Pro reel. Can’t wait to get this onto the rod and out on the river.
Pretty new to Fishing as a whole. But I’m looking to pick up my first Baitcaster combo, what do you guys think of this Rod?
The most common suggestion for beginner baitcasters around here is the Daiwa Fuego CT and a Daiwa AIRD-X. The reel can be found for $85 on Amazon or ebay. The rod can be had for $50. It is slightly more expensive than this combo, but the value is so much greater.
Best Bang for the buck
This is the most expensive baitcaster I have purchased but I have to say it feels like it should be priced way higher, like $50-$100 higher. Well worth your money. Other retailers sell this for $99.99 so on Amazon, this is a great deal. I bought it mainly to replace a junk KastKing baitcaster I had ...
Need help looking for a new reel (up to 100) to match with my new okuma sst light rod. Primarily trout fishing and some small bass.
Daiwa Fuego LT. The Pfleuger President isn’t a bad reel, but it can’t compare to the Daiwa Fuego. The Fuego has a bigger main gear (more durable), a dual bearing pinion support (one bearing at the top of the pinion gear, one on the bottom) which is a more durable design and it makes the reel smoother under load, it’s overall more refined feeling (smoother, lighter, less play between parts) and it has a system that keeps water out of the guts of the reel (magseal). A way better choice at around $100.
