Author Topic: Best Baitcaster reel (and possibly rod) for relatively light lures  (Read 201 times)

Hi guys, I am aiming towards buying a baitcaster and was wondering what would be the best reel for lures from around 20 grams (~0,75 oz) to 60 grams (~2,25 oz.)
Mainly for Pike fishing, in creeks, lakes and rivers
And what would be a good suited rod for that, and btw, I have 0.18mm braided line, will that be sufficient?


Edit:
There are not many baitcaster reels available in my country, the ones I found in my price range:
Abu Revo 4 Winch
Abu Revo 4 X
Abu Toro Max 51
Daiwa Prorex 200HLA
Okuma Ceymar LP C-266WLX
Spro Rpt Baitcaster

Rods:
Spro Bait Shaft Blade Bait 180cm 20-85g
Savage MPP2 7'3\" 221cm Trigger (20-60 grams OR < 80 grams???)
Fox Rage Warrior 2 Pike Casting 225Cm 20-80g

Thats 3/4oz-1.5 or so, thats not even close to light.  lo But just about any baitcaster will do for that.

I thought you were doing this with spinning gear?

Start out with mono or co-poly line until you learn how to cast flawlessly with that bait-caster because it can get expensive during the learning curve.  12 to 20lb test don't know what the mm equivalent would be, sorry.

Yh but my friend just bought a baitcaster (black max combo) and I kind of like it. So I want to buy one too, he has 0.20mm braid on there and I used it for about an hour without getting any birds nests. So I am very tempted to buy one.

I'd steer away from that and go for the Revo X Winch. I've had a BM low pro and it was fine for casual fishing. As soon as I started fishing regularly, it crapped out. Pinion yoke cracked, ground down the gears a bit, then I discovered the frame was flexing a LOT, and seemed permanently warped. I suspect that had something to do with it.
If you're only fishing occasionally for bass, I'd say it'd be fine. But pike? I'd give it one season, maybe. Then again, I may have just gotten a dud.

I currently have the Revo X HS and Winch. Love 'em both.
