Default Re: your opinion on expensive reels?

I use to feel the same way. I still wont spend 500 or 700 on a reel, but yes the better reels are worth the money. I use to fight fish with line in hand and still do on small ones, but after buying better reels I have found getting them on the reel is much better, if the drag is set right, and by bigger I mean like 2 lbs and up. Also the better reels last longer and are also lighter, wich means less fatige ihn casting. Like a coupe have said on here its all in what you like. For me I have found the middle of the road gear does great, last longer, cast better and is more of a joy to use, weather its reels, rods, lines or what ever. Most of my gear nowdays cost around 150-400 on rods and 100-300 on reels. Another thing to keep in mind is this time of year alot of companiesare putting things on clearance, so its a good time to pick up gear at great prices.
Good Luck Bear
