Baitfeeder reels

Rate this topic

I just got an e-mail from Cabela's that featured an Okuma Coronado Baitfeeder reel. Price is right ($50-60), but wanted to get some feedback from the experts. So, anyone had any experience with this brand/model?

Its about the same as a Shimano and better than the Penn because when the baitfeeder is on, all ya' gotta do to turn it off is crank the handle, the Penn ya' gotta flip a switch kinda thingy. IMO, these reels are kinda gimmicky,if ya wanna live line get a conventional, if ya wanna fish plugs get a spinner, the extra weight and problems you might encounter just aint worth it. For $50-60 if you must buy one of them style things its a good buy, you'll save yourself $75 and you wont use it anyway. Take the $60, add $15 or $20 and buy yourself a Daiwa SS 2600, a Penn 704 or 706 or a Daiwa BG 20 or 30, if ya want something maintemance free get yourself a Nautil from the online store and it'll only cost ya around $130.
