6 posts in this topic

Anyone had a chance to try out the new Rapala reels yet? Was thinking of picking one up but wanted to know if anyone else had tried them out yet?

No personal experience with the new Rapala reel, so I can not give you any informed unbiased feedback on it.

But I would venture a guess.....it's JOBBER-JUNK.

Their rods are very high quality so i figured that their reels would be halfway decent. A really nice reel for $35 is the Daiwa Samurai!! I used this reel and was completely blown away
