One reel to rule them all

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.

One reel to rule them all

Postby mark poulson » Wed Apr 19, 2017 12:55 am

If you had to pick one reel to use for everything, from BFS to frogging in slop, which reel would you choose?

This with an SV spool. Slp 1012 to be exact. If I had a personal order with these mods, I'm not sure it would ever leave my hands.

TDZ-R+ or Personal Order. Can use any spool for various techniques. And if I have to use just one spool for all of it an SV 105 spool in a TDZ R+ or Personal order

TD Zillion type R or Megabass IP. Stock spools for the big stuff and a DIY TD Zillion spool for BFS. A Tatula CT with DIY is also an option. If we're not allowed to swap spools then an SV103 would be my pick. Shimano Curado 70 is also a solid option too.

For 1 reel for all of my fishing, it would have to be any fast reel with a shallow SV spool. I'd say my Steez SV TW 8.1. I'd do a T3 with an SV spool as well.
