love my tanacom bull. Precision is cheaper and somewhat smaller but is new and has no history that I could find to compare it to other reels.

Pass Time (1/29/2010)love my tanacom bull. Precision is cheaper and somewhat smaller but is new and has no history that I could find to compare it to other reels.


Precisions can be hooked up to a 9/0 . So a Tanacom

Bull is bigger than a 9/0?

Look on ebay at the electric reels. I have an e<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__ctl2_lblFullMessage>lectramate, a dawia tanacom, and a miya epoch. I would never buy another reel that did not have a line counter and auto stop. The Japs are light years ahead of electramate and precision. The only decent US made reels are the Strong Fighter and Kristal.

Those Miya Epoch reels on Ebay come used from Japan with the instructions in Japanese mostly. I saw a guy on here asking for a copy of the English insructions a while back because he couldn't figure everything out.

I fish precision reels and like them because they are made in the US, reports are theyprovide good service should you have a problem (I haven't needed it), butif something goes wrong with the reel side you can replace the entire reel component brand new for around $150.00.

Butyou guys are right he will probably need a $900 Tanacom or $2000 Kristal etc to meet his fishing needs as soon as he can get it. Particularly when the Fedshave pretty much shut down deep dropping on the east coast as of Jan 2010 and when the Feds will be looking at gulf grouperseasons in Feb 2010.
