Texas rig. Probably what I throw the most, so might as well enjoy that set up as much as I can.

You know my answer already; as we have fished together. 20 of the 5500C3's all on MH rods except for the SPOOK rod. No line under 17 lb. test and get in the heaviest cover I can find this time of year. Sorry No Help with your question. I just do not use technique specific equipment for catching fish. We are going to feeding fish and they do not care. If they need to be force fed; then they will have to wait for me another day.

I like Lews Speed spool for the price, and my favorite is a crank bait. Before Pfluger changed the president to spinning real that was my favorite on a T-rig.

My reels are multi-functional.
I even have one rod and reel that I use for crankbaits, spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, swim jigs and chatterbaits.

Crazy, ain't it?


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

I use Daiwa Tatula Elites for all my fishing. Makes things simpler. My favorite reel is on all my setups.

My favorite reel is on a Falcon Lizard Dragger. I spool it with 17lb InvisX and use it for a 3/8oz Shaky head.

Shimano Chronarch Ci4 on my Falcon frog rod. I’ve replaced all other shimano with identical Lews reels but that particular Shimano is a beast.

Guess i am about like you Mr. Harper I use my 5500 c3s a lot Dont even know how many of them i have. Still throw as good as when they were new Some gotts be 30 yrs old Even have some of the red ones that they called a Winch 3:8 to 1 ratio You can sling a big swimbait a long ways with them and you dont have to worry about reeling them too fastm

My favorite reel is a Revo SX and I have 12 of them on everything from topwater and squarebill tods too flipping sticks.

Have 3 STXs that i wish i would have never bought, a couole winches on deep cranking rods, and some Lews.Speed spools. I seem to always have issues with the Speed Spools with the worm gears and drags wearing out.

Havent had a single issue with one of my SXs yet.
