  • Budget reel/s

    Hey everyone

    Ive been fishing for a few months and have been really getting in to it. Ive just been using a cheap shakespeare match rod and a no-brand baitrunner reel for some float and method carp fishing. Im looking to get some new tackle as my reel has died on me.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good reel/s? Budget: £50

    Ive seen a deal for two Okuma lexsan baitfeeders for £30 but cant find any reviews or any real info about the product.

    Also looking for a fairly cheap carp rod to go with it.

    BTW I know next to nothing about the various brands of fishing tackle apart from everyone tells me Shimano are awesome, (dont think I can afford their prices though!) so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope you're all still catching

    Dont know about the lexsans, but ive got app15 Okumas and they are good reliable reels for very little money.

      Take a look at the Shakespeare Mach3 reels they are good quality and can be foud for between £30-£40 you get 3 spare spools.

          Thanks for the quick replies. Im busy drooling my way through several websites. Anyone heard anything about Mitchell premium freespool reels?

            At one time Mitchell 300 was the ultimate reel(theres still plenty going strong today,Bernard uses one on the catching the impossible dvd)but to be honest i would not buy a new one now,if your interested ive got two Okuma dynadrag size 30 baitrunners with spare can have them for £20.00 the pair.will do for float/feeder/light carp fishing.Regards Peter.
