Nothing wrong with the older version of the shimano longcast reels - http://www.ebay.co.u...cat=0&_from=R40


Growing old is inevitable but growing up is optional

Dave,

 

What's wrong with replacing them with the same thing?

 

Guess you'll have to get the Daiwa Tournament BASIA QDX.  That's about the only thing better than what you have.

 

Actually, if you're not carp fishing all that much the guys who catfish up against the dam walls if they can are using a new (to me) reel.  I saw one this past weekend and it looked pretty good and the guy was casting a mile.  It was a TF Gear V10 Big Pit Reel - ever hear of them??  Don't know the cost or anything else.  I didn't see him land a fish.  In fact, I hope I wrote the name down correctly(?).

I am not a great lover of them as they are a bit bulky for my needs but i have just put up with them now and again. The clip i find a bit crap for starters and thats what you don't need when casting long.  It's been pushed in quite easily over the years and winds me up (excuse the pun). There are some good lighter pits that do the job now so i shall be doing a bit of homework on them . Thanks for the comments so far :)

How about these from TF Gear or these?

 

Both great reels without busting the bank. This one has 11 bearings a good line clip and no bling.

i am actually a great fan of TF. We all know that they are made in China but what the hell most are and try to disguise it. i had pits 20 years back and they have come a long way although coming and quality are two different things. I need something a bit beasty as my casting of 300 yards can take the strain!!

I have 3 of these but without the freespool.

 

Well made with worm drive and excellent drag,

 

They can cast further than I can.
