Reel suggestions for Lami Yak rod

11 posts in this topic

Looking for a reel for the Lami MH or Heavy Yak rod, was looking at the Quantum cabo 50, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Braid friendly is what I am looking for, fishing in all conditions for Stripers/Blues.

The Cabo 50 at 24 ounces is a heavy weight for casting in a kayak. Most reels weighing 14-17oz will work with MH spinning rods. Cabo 40, Shimano Stradic 5000 FI, both weighing just over 14oz and are braid friendly would be worth a look.

I have the cabo 40 as well as the vs 150. If you can minimize the amount of splash on the cabo, you can get by with one. Rinsing your equipment with luke warm water is a neccesity. Many people successfully kayak without a vs, however, I strongly suggest a vs.

my cabo spends more time in the water than out. It's still smooth and I haven't cleaned or lubbed it up this year.

 

im not sure how people end up breaking their reels from splash or a dunk here and there. all my reels have been dunked and they are still smooth and work fine.
