What Bait casting reels do y’all like for weightless rigs.I’ve been using a concept13 A1 for several years and want to try something different. Looking for lightweight high line capacity under $300.00. TIA.

Shimano MGL 70 has been fantastic for me. I have a few of them that I toss anything from jerkbaits/square bills all the way down to crappie jigs on.


If you think you're the smartest man in the room, you're not. If you know you're the smartest man in the room, find a different room.

For that budget I'd look into the Diawa Tatula SV series

https://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=75_823_3323&products_id=17319

Or

https://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=75_823_3041&products_id=15264

These reels can cast a great distance, light weight, hold good amount of line, and the SV make them a breeze to use in the wind (pun intended)

Thanks guys. I don’t think I can go wrong with any of the 3. I might just have to jump on that limited edition Tat.

Have to agree with Gilly, mgl70 is hard to beat throwing lighter baits.

X2 once you go SV you won't look back.

Tatula SV TW . If you like Daiwa reels. They work very well for me.

I’ve never owned a Diawa. My top end reels are Chronarchs. How do the tats compare?

You can set up a Tatula SV TW to throw a bait and never touch the spool. I teach people that have trouble backlashing a baitcaster or ones that have never thrown one before and it works for them. Awesome reel. I use them for skipping docks.

Ok. I have an experienced thumb and don’t backlash. Is the tat fast enough?

Then get the Tatula Elite. Is 8-1 gear ratio fast enough? It is for me. I have several of them.
