Default Re: Novice Seeks Advice for Warm water Reel

When I go out for bass and panfish, I bring two rods. A good 8wt, and a low end 5 or 6wt for the panfish.
I use $25 Medalist reels on both rigs.
I have never had my drag tested by a bass or even a pike. And the Medalist could handle it even if the situation presented itself
A expensive reel with a fancy drag is not warranted for the type of fishing you have planned
