I did a couple of research through google and found the term "non-disengaging...

  7. first mooching reel

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Purchased my first entry level mooching reel ( Daiwa M1 Plus) to see if what everyone was saying about them is true. When I ask fisherman how they like using mooching reels they all say its the only way to go. Thought I would give it a try and see if I get hooked. In addition to the Daiwa I...

  11. Mooching Reels

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I just purchased a new Shimano Mooching Reel and was a little disappointed. Apparently all the new reels come with some drag, even when you loosen it off all the way? And when you crank it tight they still allow line to spool off? I like to have full control of the tension. I took the reel back...

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    I'm in the market for a new reel and I'm curious as to what your guys thoughts are on the Shimano Tekota reels. What are your favorite qualities of the reel over a Penn? Also welcomed a better choice than a Tekota. Cheers Josh
  15. Shimano Curado 200E7 Vs 300E

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hi Guys, Recently I made the purchase of a Shimano Curado 200E7, to go along with this Sage 3113M Gear rod. The purpose is for drift fishing, rivers like the vedder/stave etc. Just wondering if anyone here uses the 200E model, and whether or not the 300E would have been the better choice...
