Emblem pro or spinfisher??

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I'm getting ready to build a stealth S2 1267 11ft surf rod for myself and I can't decide should I build it for my current diawa emblem pro (original model) 5500 in great shape or buy a new penn spinfisher ? I fish the CC canal mostly throwing plugs 1.5 /3oz using 30# braid. Emblem pro or spinfisher?

I do love the fast line retrieve of the emblem, but the spinfisher just feels like a much more solid reel to me. You will get slightly better casting distance from the emblem due to the spool design. I use my emblem specifically for distance casting and bait n' wait, but it honestly feels like a flimsy reel to me.



 



If I was plugging, tins, etc.. I personally  would go with the SSV. They are coming out with a long distance spool design of the 7500 in September.. then you're golden!
