Fixed Spool Reels

Post by Bob on Sun Oct 28, 2012 8:58 pm

Whats the best Fixed Spool Reel you have ever owned ?

For me there is only one.

The ABU Saveran- a brilliant Centre Drag Reel made in Sweden.

Never owned a suveran, sold a couple for a friend last yr who inherated but did'nt fish. they were ahead of the time in terms of design.

my 5010gt b/runner's must be the only reel that,i have kept from new, as i always change after a bit. i have 5 of them and have not seen better from shimano or other's in the bait runner market (rear drag)

had a set of shimano techs, 10,000XT which are a superb bit of engineering.

only used them once, but i think the new drennan reels will be 'up there' for me. they seem fantastic bits of kit.

I have a real soft spot for my old Mitchels - used to love using them, and they still get the odd airing for stillwater light line work, as I am so used to braking the drum instead of using the drag.
My absolute favourites are the Daiwa PM4000h- lightweight, just the right size and a dream clutch. Currently I own eight of them including a set of the Japanese version, the Longbeams...

Also love my Okuma pin - never been cleaned or serviced, but never missed a beat in all the time I've had it.
