I am ready to buy a light spinning reel for crappie and bluegill and having trouble deciding which one to choose. I'd like to spend $60-$100 on a reel that is durable for frequent use. I've been looking at the Daiwa Regal, Exceler, Legalis, Fuego and BG and Shimano Sahara and Sedona. Customer reviews on all the reels are mixed and confusing. Anyone purchase one recently and have good service out of it? Is there another brand I should consider?

I’d go with the Daiwa BG 2000 Can’t be beat at that price point.

At the $100 price point, either the Daiwa Fuego or the Shimano Nasci are favorites of mine... I have both. That said, I also have a Piscifun Carbon X that I like a lot also. Around $70 Amazon price. Worth it IMHO.

I am leaning toward the Daiwa BG and Fuego. I ordered a Daiwa Revros 2000 to try on my crappie rod. I'll send it back if it isn't what I need and get one of the others. It's hard to put eyes and hands on any locally since popular models are all sold out. Many are hard to find to order online right now. I have very little experience with spinning reels.

I fish a couple of times a week and need something that is reliable and can stand some use. I like to buy good equipment that will last.

I'm definitely looking at the BG and Fuego for another light rod and reel setup for bass fishing.

I use a Shimano Stella 2500 hg with a Palo Compadre Med-light rod good for all types of fishing. It might be above your price point but good quality products.

I’ve been using Sahara reels for tbe Ultralight niche for years. Very good service from them. But I’ve been tinkering with some Daiwa LT series reels recently. Really like them. Started with a Fuego. Just got a Tatula. They are both awesome. I do not fish saltwater and probably really should have bought the Exceler first. It’s basically the same as a Fuego but also has the MagSeal tech. I only bought the Tatula. cause I found it very cheap. Wow. What a reel. And so light at 5.8 oz. Paired perfectly the the new St Croix Legend Elite Panfish rod I have.

I appreciate the advice and experiences. I bought the Daiwa Revros 2000 size to try and like it so far. In my very limited use it seems to be smooth and well made for the price. It is small. I haven't used it enough to give it a review or recommend it. I am going to the Frio River on July 19th and will give it a good workout to report back.

I'm looking for another spinning setup for using 8lb line for white and black bass fishing. I will probably look again to the Daiwa LT series.
