JDM shimanos from Digikata, if they are out of inventory, check back in a few days. There is an additional fee of about $5 when using PayPal. Here’s two examples.

If you want a DC reel.

Yes, I’ve bought 7 Shimano reels there over the last 2 months. Takes about about a week to get them, but you save a lot.

I have almost 2 dozen Metaniums and Bantams from them.

Not quite certain what you are asking.

Are you wanting a place to buy expensive reels at a relatively low price?

Or are you wanting our opinions on the best "bang for the buck" on reels?

The JDM Shimanos are fine reels, but not in my opinion the most cost effective reels if you just want to go fishing.

And of course that just leads down another litany of questions about you and how serious you are about fishing.

There's a Shimano Stella sitting in the garage. Got a few months ago. $100 off.

Best quality price to reel? More like best stress amount to reel. You'll do all you can to keep it from scraping on rocks.

Form and function? A horse fly can take a [censored] on the string and you'll feel it. Smooth like you've never felt.


Next up is the middle priced Daiwas with the new style of frame. MQ series. Which is their technology from the Exist line.


Last is the KastKing. It'll do everything you want.

Abu Black Max combo, never any problems and cast decent. WE use them very much. Easy under $100 with good line.

I have only used the 20 Metaniums and Scorpion DC, the Metaniums are definitely easy to cast. I believe they have 1-2 models that are more expensive than the Metanium. Not sure if more expensive means better or just newer. Kind of wish I would have bought the scorpion monster drive to try as well, but I’m done buying reels.

I have a couple of the Scorpion MGL's. Kind of like a cross between the Curado K and the Curado 150 MGL. I actually think the 150 MGL is a better reel.
