      I have a variety of pflueger reels but I feel like the quality isn’t what it used to be. I have been checking out Diawa reels and they seem to be pretty smooth and solid. The next reel I buy will be a Diawa.

      Same. My number one rod, for pretty much all but pike-specific fishing, is a lower-end Loomis with a Patriarch. Time after time, fish after fish, no troubles. Any mess-up is completely this guy's mistake.

      Casting cranks into the wind, at night, especially when it's cold out, equals snarls. Sometimes. Otherwise, no issues whatsoever with Pflueger.

      I used to love Shimano reels, then I seemed to develop bail issues with them, one by one.

      I've since gone the way of Pflueger, they really do feel different than the Shimano reels I once loved, but thus far they have been problem free. Someone up above also noted the "buy cheap and replace as needed" strategy. Yep...I once got a deal on some Mitchell reels years ago for some jigging rods and didn't even think twice about them until just this spring when the last one finally crapped out on me. Mentioned it to a very avid fishing partner who also bought a bunch of the same reels only to realize we got them roughly 12 years ago. For a $20 reel, that was a damn good purchase!

      Anyway, I probably have nearly 20 rod/reel combos nowadays. There's something I liked about every single one of them and how they filled a particular niche or they wouldn't be in the rack. Some were $50 combos, some were worth closer to a couple hundred, but they each still fill a niche. I find I like line-counter reels a lot nowadays when fishing with the kids, by giving them a number I help ensure they have the crank or BB in the strike zone. Nothing worse than seeing a kid pull a BB around for an hour about ten ft up off the bottom. Speaking of which, I could probably use another BB rod/reel combo.

      I’m a Daiwa man now. I like the Pflueger’s too, but prefer the similar priced Daiwa’s. They seem smoother to me, and I like the drag better.

      aNY OF yall hand your wife a spinning rod when your pitchin and she looks at me like wth is that. My wife told me last weekend -- i cant cast those spinning reels -- hand me my blue one . (she has a blue quantum bait caster that is hers and it is set in free spool mode no less).

      - - - Updated - - -

      I got a speed spool - its ok - i cant remember the speed but its a burner. Diawa -- somebody mentioned --- do you remember back in the 80s when one of the reels had a gear shifter on it. I had millionaire as one of my first baitcasters -- loaded with dacron -- those were the days. rippin reeds
