I realize there will be many opinions but I need some guidance on reels. I have several Abu 6500's in the round conventional style for SW fishing which I like alot but they have the side bar casting button and not easy to palm. I also have a few smaller low profile bass reels like the Shimano Curado but they don't seem tough enough. Neither of these seem right.

I would like a larger low profile reel that has a high speed gear ratio and a solid drag to handle braid and catching muskie. Any suggestions or experiences, positive or negative would be approciated.

Thanks

low profiles id go with - Abu revo toro / Shimano curado

Round reel - with out a doubt the best in my eyes shimano calcutta te / low price decent reel diawa luna

I have a Curado 200 I use for bass. I just ordered an Abu Revo Toror 60HS so I canuse it in the saltwater/bays as well. Some guys I keep in touch with from old job in the tackle business hooked me up with a wholesale price ;D Thanks for the suggestions.

Can't wait to get it!

My Abu Revo/Toro HS60 arrived today ๐Ÿ˜›

I've always loved my Abu 6500 round reels in the surf, so I'm curious how this low profile will work for me. She looks and feels great.

Now all I have to do is hook a muskie and find out how it works for me.
