Inexpensive boat spinning reel recommendations

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

building a 7' 15-25lb glass spinning boat rod and am needing to pair it up with something that my guests can beat up use.  Mainly going to be used for chunks and clams, although eels and or bunker are not out of the question.  I would like to stay under $100.00

Thoughts?

I've heard good things about the Penn Battle 2. Seems like a decent reel for the price.

I have the new Diawa BG for an all purpose boat reel and it's great. You can get it for under $100 if you search for a sale and the internal gears are rock solid. Check out Alan Hawks latest article for a much more thorough review.

That Diawa has some amazing reviews.  Thanks guys. Have to check it out. For a 7' 15-25 rod, i am thinking the 4500?  Sound about right?  I might just bring it to a shop and try it on.

Another vote for the new Daiwa BG.  I've been using three of them this year for albies and have no complaints.  For about $100, slightly more or less depending on the size, they warrant strong consideration.

Fluke Off- great read.  Thank you for that.  This reel sounds perfect...  Now I just have to contain myself from buying too many.  I think I made up my mind...  Thanks for the recommendations guys!!!
