Got my first Low Profile Baitcaster

3 posts in this topic

Was at the Academy today when I saw the H2O Express (Academy's brand) Mettle Baitcaster on clearance from 60 to 24. Had to take it. Has some decent ratings online and I said ah, what the heck, it's 24 bucks. Seems pretty solid.

The first low profile that I ever had was a Shimano Bantum and the first baitcaster that I ever had. It was an OK reel, but I didn't pay a lot for it either. Came as an outfit with the rod. 

 

I went to the ABU round reels next, and they've been great, but have also added LP's to my collection. I have a couple of the first generation Revo's, and a couple of the Silver Max. The Silver Max is probably inline with that Mettle, not the best reel, but certainly will do the job and not expensive. 

 

I've heard that those Mettles are good reels for the price, and feel the same about the Silver Max. 

 

I got the Silver Max the same way, couldn't pass up on a deal! 

 

Let us know how it works for you & how well it holds up!
