Default Re: Cabelas Lsr Reel

dmoliver,

Cabela's sells some very well made reels. A good way to evaluate reels is to compare workmanship. Cabela's sells Galvan and Tibor reels. Look at the machining on these reels and see how smooth they wind. Remove the spool and look at the inside of the reel. If you can see the drag surface compare the size of one to another. See if you like the outgoing click and the incoming click if it has one. Then look at the reel you are interested in and compare the features and workmanship to the other reels. This will give you a good idea of how well the reel is made but not how well the drag works under fishing conditions. How well a reel fishes comes from fishing experience. That is where this forum comes into play. I am sure that one of our posters has this reel and will give you their feedback.
