Spidercast spinning reels?

8 posts in this topic

Absolutely superb reels made to cross wind superlines so they don't embed the line into the rest of the line on the spool. They also have a little device that grabs the line to keep it tight on the spool so you don't ever end up with those annoying little loops we all curse when using light line! I have used them for two seasons now on my summer ultralight combos. Have not tried them on ice fishing set ups as they seem a little heavy so kind of hard to balance on a short rod.

BTW if you ever get a chance to try the spider cast levelwinds (baitcasters) do so. They are almost impossible to backlash and in my opinion the BEST reels on the market for the price...nothing else even comes close.

Thanks Chiro -
Are they the SCA 10, 30, 50 models? Are we talking about the same reels? From the same folks who make Spiderline?

That reel is on sale at Gander Mt. in Madison right now for $29. I'm not sure what the regular price is though. I just stopped by yesterday for some ice fishing gear and they had a table full of them.

Take care.

Thanks Apel, and welcome to the forums. I picked up the SA10 the day after Thanksgiving in St.Cloud. Looks like it will be a good reel for the price. Now I just need some Powerpro 4lb diameter, and the Gapen's rod I've been eyeing, and my Walleye Weapon will be ready to go for Spring.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
