Who uses something other than a standard reel for bigger baits (a-rig/swimbaits)? I think I thrashed my Lews BB1 by throwing heavy rigs. The reel wouldn't stay engaged. Pulled it apart and found a broken screw post one the palming side plate. I put it back together right on the other three connections, but pretty sure it won't hold up. What reel would be a good low profile reel in a heavy duty construction for these big baits?
Not looking to spend $500 either , $200-$300 I would call mid-high end.
