Reel Comparisons

We've taken a lot of time to not only try to describe how each model and size difference, but we've gone as far as making measurements of each reel so that we can work a more accurate comparison. Many of our customers don't have the luxury of being able to visit the shop and pick up and compare the reels directly. Buying online can be a nightmare. So we've done as much of the hard work for you, to try and make the visual comparisons easier for you.

We Recommend...

The Stradic stands head and shoulders for us above other Shimano reel models. Priced at over £100, you have the FK and Ci4+ models to choose from. We'll shortly be presenting a full comparison between these two. in this price range they are as good as reels get, and actually punch well above their price tags.

To go one step further, the Twin Power XD has become the bass anglers high-end reel of choice.
