$400 and under, what baitcaster are you buying?

Go! Prefer Daiwa or ABU.

Are those the reels I can't backlash? Mind you, I can backlash ANYTHING!

Steeze on ebay. May have to shop a bit, but you'll find them.

Metanium, just a hair over 4 bills but the Chronarch 150 are nice for $279.

My highest end reels are Shimano Bantam MGL's. Pretty much make any $200 reel feel like junk.

REVO MGX-I have a few of these and they have performed very well for me the last few years-pretty sturdy for being very light. I like the mgextreme REVO too but itโ€™s over 400. I have generally been a Shimano guy and the new metanium looks really cool but the older I get every 0.5 oz wt less I like more.

Nope, but just like having to drive a lot of miles in a car. A Pinto will get you there but an Escalade will make the ride more enjoyable.
