What's in your reel collection?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I actually started off as a Shimano guy (the last almost 20 years) and within the last few years I have slowly been adding Daiwa reels to the lineup. I used to always use Shimano casting and Daiwa Spinning but now I have almost an even balance of both.

I used to have a mix of Daiwa, Shimano, Abu, and BPS reels. At some point I decided that I like the feel and braking of Daiwa reels over all others and slowly switched. My want list does include a Shimano Stella and Shimano Conquest.

How do you like your Rosso? what are you planning on using it for? one megabass reel in not enough so you'll have to come up with another(and another. and another.)

Never used it yet. The thing freespools to beat all and feels really smooth. I know the Zaion framed reels will flex a bit under heavy loads so it'll probably be used for jerkbaits or something like that.
I figured that's how Megabass reels would be. :lol: TBH I already have a second one coming from Japan, but I may resell that one, depends how I like it.
