Hi-
Looking for a reel to fish mainly medium to deep diving crankbaits... and maybe the Alabama rig which i havent tried yet...and also maybe big spinnerbaits and swimbaits..

Leaning toward the Revo Winch or a Shimano but would like to see what you guys think.. putting it on a Falcom Cara MH Rod...
Budget for the reel is anything under $250
thanks..

I am running the revo winch this year and so far i love the winch. Shimano Curado I is plenty of reel for what you listed. The swimbait and A-rig part which size are you throwing for both? A-rig/swimbait needs it own rod and reel usually depending on the weight for throwing them. The ownly reason I went to Abu was because there the only reel brand that offer slower gear ratio in left hand.

The Revo Winch reel was made specifically for high resistant baits like big crankbaits, swimbaits, a-rigs etc. I use these reels for all of these techniques and love them. Also you might want to look into the Orra Winch reels. Both reels are very strong and also have very smooth and powerful drag systems in them. They also have wider spools so that they can hold more line.

Revo winch and go look on EBay. The last 6 Revo gen 3 reels I have bough have all been brand new in the box and I have bought for 135-145 shipped to my house. Winch might be slightly higher at $155
