      No problem, just match up the line Specs to your budget. All of them are good, but your going to pay for a great reel

      @SwampMafia what reels do you recommend?
    8. Swamp Mafia 0
      Get 2 of the penn prevails(100$ each) 10 or 12 foot

      The Daiwa reel @Cowboy713 is talking about is a great reel for the price. I'm looking into getting me one of those too.

      @TexasYakman @MusicCityBassin PENN prevail 10'=$70 Daiwa depends on where you get it, new=$100+ eBay I got mine for $45
    17. TexasYakman 0
      Yeah that sounds like a good idea I will probably spend more on a reel thanks @MusicCityBassin
    18. MusicCityBass 0
      @TexasYakman but ugly stiks are cheap so you might be able to put a little more into a reel
    19. MusicCityBass 0
      @Cowboy713 he said about $200
    20. MusicCityBass 0
      The penn is fairly expensive. I got mine for $150 but i got one of the middle ones. They go anywhere from $75-$250. @Cowboy713 fishes saltwater more than i do
    21. TexasYakman 0
      @MusicCityBassin around $200

      Knowing your budget would help, but a PENN Prevail 10' with a Daiwa SL30SH is a solid first setup, depending on where you get the Daiwa the setup could set ...more you back as little as $100-$125
    23. MusicCityBass 0
      Look into getting a Penn, they have great reels but they are pretty expensive and i agree with @MulletHead that ugly stik makes very sturdy rods at low prices
    24. TexasYakman 0
      @MulletHead I've heard that and have a 7' with a good spinning reel and wanted to know other options outside of Shakespeare
    25. Gabe Mitchell 0
      Not knowing your budget, a 10' ugly stick is a good entry level option.
