What’s a good medium sized spin reel for bass fishing with braid?
Going to use one little more this year since having elbow issues

The Pflueger President is the one I use and it's been bomb proof!

always a fan of the Shimano Stradic. lower end shimano's are made in Malaysia with inferior components. id highly recommend japanese made reels especially for braid.

I have probably caught over a thousand fish on a Sedona over the years but the newer ones are kind of cheaped out now. I have a Stradic now and love it, it is a very nice real!


See you on the lake and have a great day!

I have been very pleased with a Shimano NASCI in the 3000 size. The best reel at the price point IMO. I just ordered another one.

I have 1 medium spinning reel on the deck. Stradic. 10 years old and smooth. Drag is very good.

I have a couple of the H2O brands and a Diawa Ballistic. All of them get used. 2500-3000 size is my preferred size.
