Well another season has come and gone and I’m deep into prepping for next season. With that in mind I thought Id share some observations about the new reels I fished this past season. Some of the are much newer then others and I have less time with them, but I have enough. The brands I fished this year is Abu Garcia, in and STX and SX. I also have a ALX that I may touch on a little bit. Daiwa Tatulas in the CT-R model as well as the newer SV. Shimano Curado K and Chronarch 151MG. Some of these reels I liked much more then others on a broad scale. However I did find that when applied to specific applications they really shined. With that in mind Ill start with the Abu Garcia.
