Default My answers to the " Best Combo " thread

This is only my opinion, sharing it for those who are interested in what I use or are on the market.

America I want to introduce you to the :

Shimano
AR-C AERO CI4+ C3000HG
( NOT SOLD IN THE STATES ) yall really need to google this reel!!!

why I like it :
Smoothest spinning reel I have ever owned
Its over size spool makes for a Great!!! LONG CASTS WITHOUT DOWNING TO 10LB TEST : I use 30lb
Its made for wading and surf fishing!!!
Very light and strong made with Xship tech.
Feels so much better then the stradic ci4+ ( I own 2 of those and do like them )

I have this reel paired to a :

Tsunami Airwave 7'6"
MF
bang for buck cant beat it. Its light and serves as a great red fish rod.

My casting setup :

13 concept "c" 8:1:1
Made for inshore
Casts a mile. Best in distance Ive ever thrown.
Super light at 6oz
Palms very easy
22lbs of drag for when you hook into that bull !!!
Very corrosion resistant
Comes stalk with some badass ceramic bearings

This reel is paired up with :
GLoomis GLX MBR843C
Insanely light weight
Incredibly sensitive

This casting setup is super light weight and casts very very far. Super sensitive for that extra feel while fighting a fish giving you a more exhilarating action pact fight.

Tight Lines and Good Fishin and thank you all for yalls inputs on your favorites majority rules and I took it into consideration for my next setup

Lol, funny.

You know what I wonder...I hear about long casts from these newer bait casters. So far when I been around them or seen them in action, I can still out cast them in distance, accuracy is way better w/ a spinning outfit also.

Why is it that claim of long distance made?

Barefoot,
It all depends on who is casting and what the setup is. I have outcasted a lot of people who were using spinning gear. The main reasons to use a baitcaster IMO is it handles heavier lines with ease compared to a spinning reel as well as accuracy. Braid isn't that big of an issue, but with flourocarbon, well its hard to use 12-20lb flouro on a spinning reel. And accuracy with a spinning reel

Josh does that reel have the long spool like the surf casting spinning reels? It pops up on Shimano Japan.

http://www.amazon.com/Moulinet-Shima.../dp/B00BR8AXYM $227.26 on Amazon

Yep, any tool in the right hands will perform better than in-experienced. I also agree w/ you on the line wt., much easier w/ bait casting & heavy line.

Accuracy to me is being able to hit a pie plate size opening under an over hanging bush, floating down a river or skipping a lure 4 ft back under a dock opening of 1-2 ft. at night from 30 ft. away.

I don't see from an engineering point of view how a bait caster can handle the velocity of line leaving the reel needed to get the straight line trajectory needed for this type of precision without absolute free spooling. The risk of constant back lash seems very high to me.

But...I might not have met the bait casting master fishermen capable of making those casts yet.
