I started using those underspin trigger style reels this year, and I love the way they feel. They're very quick to set the hook from rod holders, and there's no flipping the bail back and forth. I've been using the cheapo Shakespeare reels, but they don't hold enough line, and they don't spool out very smoothly. I like to use Mr. Crappie 10 pund test just in case a bass gets on or to pull out of a brushpile. Anyone know of any that are really good quality? The one by Abu Garcia looks nice, but it's $34!

I use a pfluger pinnacle, not sure on the spelling, on one of my jig poles. Paid 20 bucks @ Academy. I use fireline, and this is a smoooooth reel. Going to replace the other one next check!

I only buy the cheap ones.
That being said, my .02 worth

Okuma "ignite" - smoothest drag, wobbles a little
Quantum "?" - smooth drag, no wobble at all
Abu Garcia "cardinal" - horrible drag, wobbles like the okuma

Last year I bought a PAT-10 from Pro Angler Tackle. Here are some of it attributes.

Closed Face Fail Safe Trigger Spin Reel
Excellent Sling Shot Casting Reel.....

· Unique One inch face opening for less line resistance,
casts like an open face reel.
· 4 Precision Ball Bearings
· Gear Ratio 3.2:1
· Precision-cut Brass Gears
· One inch opening
· Interchangeable left/right handle
· Trigger clutch for easy casting
· Instant Anti-reverse
Smooth Disc drag
It is only $24 on his web site and he is another TFF member.
I really like this reel. Here is the web site.
Pro Angler Tackle Reels Ed is a real nice guy to do business with too.
That's my 2 cents worth, spend it wisely! cheers

Try the Zebco 33 Trigger Spin. It will hold 130 yards of 10# line.

My boyfriend uses the Zebco Authentic 11, and has had no problems with it. I do the line spooling and it seem smooth and does not wobble on the reel seat like some I have seen.

Sounds like the one Pro Tackle sells is really good.

Zebco also makes one smaller than the 33 that works great. I can't remember the number of it, but I've got one and really like it.

Don't get the zebco 11, drag sux...bought one for Mandi's lil pole and it didn't even seat right. Kinda had to shim it. She caught a few bass on it accidentally while crappie fishing and they pulled some dragm, and now the drag is not working, now its useless. They are a neat design, but try some other brand. Zebco isn't what it used to be sadly.
