  • Feeder Reels....

    Im looking for all your advice on a few reels ive been looking at which are priced between £20-£40 on ebay. My sons want to buy me a reel for xmas and my wife says thet want to choose one themselves without my help (not)... Im not going to let them part with all their paper money bless them so the budget is £40 max.

    My only feeder reel is a Daiwa Whisker and i'd love another but to expensive for them. Ones ive looked at that are of simalar design and make are the Daiwa Crossfire and Sweepfire 3000x the Daiwa Procaster X 3500 and the Daiwa RS4000i. Im not sure of there size and performace in relation to the Whisker, but they need to be ok to use on mainly Commys and fit well with Garbolino Rocket picker rods i use.

    Which size Whisker do you use this should then guide you the right model. I would have thought a 4000 would be too big with the rocket. I use Daiwa reels but allways have matching pairs as the spools are interchangable & you put 1 rod down pick up the other & everything is the same. cheers John

      The Whisker i use is the 3012. The reels ive mentioned above do come in smaller sizes its just finding out which would be better if so?

        of the ones you mention the procaster x seems the better reel, but what about a 2nd hand Whisker you could always advertise on here

          Ive tried that with no luck but will keep trying. The Procast is the more expensive so is prob the best but is it of the same size of a Whisker? Are the others poor reels and cheap for a resaon?

            Its got more ball bearings & ali spools. Ive just looked on ebay & you can get a brand new Whisker 3012 for £62.69 delivered, get the wife to put £20 towards it. Better to have 2 the same

              Hi mate,just to throw another into the mix-take a look at the colmic kometa-a great little reel,very similar to the daiwa td's and whiskers.I prefer double handles,which is why I sold it,but you get a whole lot of reel for the money. Typically I sold one yesterday on here for £40! I know chubb tamer had some in his shop,if you're interested,send him a pm,he may have one for £40 odd.

                I personally would try my hardest to get a Shimano - fantastic reels

                  The Wife has payed for my trip abroad with the lads next year god bless her (but she's not happy me going away and she aint) so asking for another penny is pushing it. If i could get a second hand one off here i would it but ive always just missed them. Are all the colmic Kometa reels double handled Paul? I did see your post but the double handle was the only thing that put me off to be honest as it does look a decent reel for the money? Bluser i have 2 Shimano Aero Perfection 3000 XT 7 reels and they are the business and great for Waggler work but a touch to big for my Feeder Rods.

                    No mate,the colmic is single handled,I just prefer double,especially for feeder fishing. Well worth a look.

                      Its funny Paul I like double handles for feeder fishing as they balance better but prefer single handles on the float. cheers John

                        Very true,john. It's easier to set the tip just right with a balanced double handle. Great minds,eh? ;-)

                          These are amazing little reels my grandad has got one but it may be a bit small for what you want it for.
