I'm after a new 4000 or 5000sized reel can anybody recommend 1 for plugging
I have recently bought the 2010 2500R Certate to go on my Injection ..... lovely size reel, and it has the gearing of the bigger 3000 model in the 2500 body. I wouldn't go any bigger than one of these now. However, the size and weight of the reel needs to be balanced with the rod you will use it on.Certate.....................
I don't have the Teklon or know about the Cormoran, but I reckon that any of the Shimano 4000 size reels like the F1 should be fine, (although the Rarenium is a lighter reel). I have the 2009 Savage Gear Bushwhacker 8' 6" 15-40g and the 4000 Stradic FI is fine on that. If the reel balancing on the rod is of concern you may also find that one or other of your 'shortlisted' reels feels better balanced on the rod. I suppose that is more of a personal issue and the only way to know for sure is to actually bring the rod with you and try the different reels (or failing that other reels of a similar weight) in store. Although having said that if you are unable to get to a suitable store you could always return an online order if you are unhappy with the balance on your Teklon. The Shimano website provides the actual weight of all of their reels, (the Stradic FI will be on their U.S. website).the stradic fI looks nice. how would it compare to a cormoran blackstar for example. i'm after a new reel to go on a teklon 802 8ft. i think a 4000 size would be too much/ too big? any thoughts?
