Suggestions for a new (pitch/flip/frog) reel
« on: August 06, 2018, 01:42:06 PM »

So I'm looking for a new rod, and think I'm going with a 7'4"  H2o Xpress Tac40 Heavy

Anyhow, need to find a good reel to go with it.
Currently do 90% of my fishing with a 7' MH and Revo SX. So what I imagine for a new reel would be a little heftier... heavier drag, faster retrieve

OR switch the Revo SX to the new reel and find something new, silky, and smooth for my current 7' MH

The new Revo Beast comes out next month and looks to be amazing w/30lb drag
Also considering some Daiwa reels (Tatula Type R)

Any other suggestions? Shimano Curado? Maybe the H2o XpressTAC40 reel? Only problem is those both have 12lb drags.

 lo lo .. beat me to it.

Rman, I have fished with many reels for my frog fishing application. If you are looking for an affordable workhorse reel that will serve you for a long while. The Citica is hard to beat. Good luck!!

seems like skunk lately.

I'm a tech/spec junkie. I don't know what I'm doing 85% of the time. 30lb drag sounds like something to brag about.
They got guys catching catfish on barbie and ninja turtle rods, and I'm out here trying to set the hook on bluegill with a 15' surf rod...

Lol. The high drag thing is nuts, 30lbs is crazy, and dont honestly think the roller clutch bearing would hold for very long at lock down. It looks good on paper, but you aint gonna need any more than 15.
