Just received a new Power Tackle composite cranker 7’3” rod as a gift and now need a reel. It’s been awhile since I’ve looked at baitcasting reels. I’m more familiar with spinning reels.

Need some suggestions on baitcasting reel for fishing spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, square bills.

I would prefer to stay in $150 — $200 range and $250 probably my upper limit..

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Tatula SV is what I utilize for my square bills. I'm a fan of 1.5 size therefore you need an sv style reel to help cast and get distance even in the wind.

What is your budget?? I would opt for a 2020 Metanium 150 B HG. But if that is too rich for your blood then I would grab a Curado 200 or Curado 150 MGL if you can find one.


Thats my money fish

2000 Scorpion Metanium MG's used out of Japan for about $100. I just bought 2 more. They have a few more right handers. I buy lefties.

The BB1 pro and the Super Duty's are great reels.

The Daiwa Tatula CT works very well for crank baits also, including square bills.
