I've been out of the game due to my job that makes me travel all the time but I'm now where I can take time to do the things I love like fishing again ....

Best reels out there ? ( price 0.00 - 199.99 would be nice )

Best rods brand wise ? ( price 0.00 - 199.99 would be nice )

I use to be shimiano curado and pfluger trion all star and castaway and falcon
Dunno if these are still top of the game .. Any help would be great !!! Thanks in advance !!

I prefer lews reels, the most expensive one I own is 160 the bb1. I think tacklewarehouse has them on sale right now for 139. I have a few of their 100 and 120 reels and they cast just as good. I pair all mine with the H20 ethos at academy. I think they are 69 not on sale but when they do go on sale you can get them 49 or even 39. I know they are not a TFO or g loomis but I love them. They have a great return policy I hear but ive never broken one or have had one with any defects

I take advantage of sales. Tackle warehouse will have their gift cards on sale for father's day and then use that to buy gear on July 4th Sale. Then you get almost 30 percent off.

I personally like Lews reels and 13 omen rods.

Lews BB1 Pro is my favorite reel at the moment. Retail is $199, but they can be had for $130-$150 if you watch for them.

Lews and 13 Omen are what I would recommend too. All Star and Castaway aren't what they used to be, Falcon still make great rods for reasonable prices too.

Well. If your going to Cabela, they have a house brand called the "arichnid" that is the same as a Tatula, but supposedly has more bearings. The handles even still have the Daiwa logo.

I have a tatula type-R i will sell to you for $100 bucks... I DON"T like it at all. It is one year old

If it was me and you want a high speed, go get the lews superduty in 8-1 or the revo rocket, i'm DONE with Tatulas for sure... They feel cheap to me and i'm disappointed in the way it is holding up.
