Think i need to get a new crappie reel, have been using the pflueger president, but thinking about the shimano sedona. What is your opinion on the sedona or what is your preference?

Shimano Stradic if it’s in your price range.

The Runcl Merced 2000 & the Titan II 2000 Series are sleeper reels! The Merced has 10+1 bearings and smooth as silk with a 5.2.1 ratio. Excellent line capacity with a textured spool for braided line if you decide to use braid & priced for the working mans pocket book. Endorsed by Sgt Chris Gill of Asleep At The Reel youTube videos. He also has a discount code available of 15% I believe. I purchased two Merced 2000 `s before his endorsement Video wish I had waited but still a Quality reel under $30.00 ain`t too bad at all. Check em out on Amazoncoolio

For the money your going to be hard pressed to do better than the President IMO. I like those and the Shimano Sienna 1000's although I don't get much life out of them but for $30 they're hard to beat!

I've been looking for a new crappie/blue gill rod and reel. There are so many options. I've looked at Pflueger Trion, President,. Shiamno Curado. Abu Garcia cardinal SX 10, Diawa Sweepfire. . I'm still researching but in the mean time I went down to Walmart and bought a Lew's Lite Speed Ultra Lite Spinning reel and a Shakespear 7' mirco series rod $40 combined and I'm pretty impressed with what I got. I think it'll last a season of two.

Fishbonz, Thanks for the info on the reels. I have marked them so I can order a couple in a couple of weeks. I was looking for some nice reels to replace all my 1000 reels. Tired of all the little reels I have. I like dock shooting and think the 2000 size would be better for me.

You`re Welcome BRT! These Reels are rugged & VERY well constructed! Pair em up with your favorite rod and GO snatch a few.
