SW budget reel - Your take is invaluable

Hypothetically:

  • a guy gets back into fishing after a divorce.
  • He has no money
  • he isn’t humble or appreciative so don’t offer him anything cheap or free.
  • he used to like Penn Zs but just sold one and maybe wants another one.
  • Strict budget, Walmart friendly, but not interested in stuff that’ll ever fail. 
  • likes long walks trolling $20s on a string. 
     

What say you? Asking “for a friend”

Suck it up buttercup. Nothing good is cheap now.  Check the sold item on ebay for recent trends. Some might get rid of their used gosa for a cheaper to upgrade to the newest gen.

I’ve used 3 different Shimano Sedonas in the backbays and out front for 3 years now.  4,000, 2,500, and 1,000 size all just get a rinsing and drop of oil on the spindle after every outing.  Good as new and can’t beat them for $70.  This reel is based on the Nasci with less ball bearings and not sealed.  If you want to spend $109, Daiwa BG would be my choice all day every day!

How about , hypothetically,

- Sell you Z reel for $50 and than ask it is OK to buy same reel for $200.

- Start dozen treads about surf reels

-Discard any sugestion

-Get a budget of $20 and look to buy latest VS model

-Shut down any suggestions

-Read Allen Hawk latest reports

-Discard any suggestions

-Start another tread

-Discard any suggestion

LOL

If it isn't Saltiga at least, reel is no good.
