    just go to your local tackle place and ask to handle the reals and get a good feel for what you like. i love my 25 buck spinner over my 100 baitcaster, just feels better and fouls less, so its totally up to you.

    So I've been real busy with work lately and now that there giving me a little bit more time on my hands I can FINALLY go out and shop for some reels. I haven't gone out yet to any stores, plus the only ones near me are ****'s Sporting Goods. The closest Cabela's is about 2 hours away but worth the trip.

    The only "shopping" I have done was just on website, and opinions from other people. Just curious I got a list from a friend who suggested several reels in the same brand names everyone has recommended here, I was wondering from this list if any of them are good or worth to get.

    Shimano Sedona Spinning Reel
    Shimano Sahara FD
    Shimano Sedona 4000 FD
    Shimano Sahara 2500/3000/4000 FD
    Daiwa Takara 1500/2500/3500
    Daiwa Exceler? (can't understand his writing on that lol)
    Pflueger PResident

    Any of them good? Also what does FD mean? and the different numbers?

    I have both a Shimano sahara and sedona. Imo spend a bit more and get the Sahara its a super smooth reel and I actually use it over my kevin van dam reel alot of times. Depending on what your fishing for Id stick with the 1000 or 500. If you notice the weight almost triples on the bigger reel which can wear you down over the day.

    I was looking at just getting it from ****'ssportinggoods and I think they only have the 2500 as lowest. I'll have to check

    Find an older Mitchell / Garcia 300 or 301 on Ebay if you can...... Mine is almost 30 years old and works like I bought it yesterday.
    I handle stress like a dog.... If I can't eat it or play with it, I pee on it and walk away !!!

    The black and gold Penn reels are the best IMHO&IME. I have had a couple for a very long time. I use them in both salt and fresh. If used in salt the reel is just rinsed down with freshwater after every trip.
