A Workhorse Reel at a Budget Price : Abu's Orra SX
Abu Garcia's Orra SX is essentially a lower cost version of the company's workhorse, REVO SX. It shares a very similar overall profile and shape, but is styled far less aggressively in its medium grey painted sideplates and matte trey finish frame.
Pflueger Delivers Supreme Value in the Mg Based SP35X
Pfleuger continues with their edict of providing anglers with quality value at a quality price with their recently re-imaged Supreme spinning reel. What makes this reel such a value? How about a spinning reel with a magnesium body and rotor for only $99.99? Let's take a look and see if this reel's performance can keep pace with its awesome price.
Abu Garcia's Unicorn : The REVO Toro Beast!!
Big, strong, and slow - big bait fisherman are always on the look out for a reel with these three characteristics: big in terms of line capacity with twenty to thirty pound test nylon monofilament; strong in terms of power, frame rigidity, and drag; slow in terms of gear ratio. Like the ubiquitous triangle of desire, you can usually find two of the three traits, but to have all three in concert - especially if you prefer a left hand retrieve reel - well, that's the unicorn.
Quantum Breaks the 8.0 Barrier with Speed Freak
Quantum has been making big strides in recent years offering solid performing reels at prices that don't break the bank. Maligned for years over reels that were too heavy or just didn't perform as advertised, their recent Smoke and Exo introductions are helping the company turn things around. Several years ago, their Smoke introduction gained an Editor's Choice Award right here on TackleTour.

A First Look Inside Shimano’s New Curado Compact High Speed Reels
Officially introduced this weekend at the Bassmaster Classic Expo the new Curado 70 baitcasters from Shimano are the most compact Curado Series reels that we have seen to date. The new lineup is all about a smaller footprint but equally as exciting is how blazing fast these new compact reels are.

Big Features in a Budget Package : Daiwa Revros 2500H
Known primarily for their mid to high end product, for years, anglers have clamored for more price conscience reels from Daiwa Corporation. Recent introductions of the Lexa, original Tatula, and Exceler product lines have shown the company was listening. Today we look at a product that demonstrates not only have they been listening, but they've delivered - introducing the Revros spinning reel by Daiwa.

Dream Fishing Tackle's Aftermarket Air Spools
One perspective that sets our readership apart from that of your typical fishing industry publication is the devotion of our readers to the gear. No where is this more evident than with fishing reels, so whenever there's an opportunity to discuss aftermarket components for fishing reels supplied by a 3rd party vendor we get excited.
Carrot Stix Switches Gears with the New Spectra 2-Speed Spinning Reels
Carrot Stix, the company that made a name for itself with brightly colored orange rods made with carrot nano-fiber, is now expanding their product offerings to include reels. The new reel offerings will include both baitcasters and spinning reels and without a doubt the most interesting of these new offerings is the upcoming 2-speed Spectra spinning reels
Shimano Stradic FK – A Solid Design
Long considered the mainstream reel in the Shimano spinning lineup the Stradic is now all grown up, and the latest FK version is a major departure from previous generation reels, featuring the latest design philosophies and features from Shimano.

Accurate Introduces Hot New Boss “Valiant” 300 Conventional Reel
With the warmer water of the El Niño pattern the saltwater fishing off the coast of California has been especially exciting this year. Timed perfectly Accurate is introducing a new 300 size single-speed reel that is designed specifically for inshore and light-action offshore applications, meet the new BV-300 Valiant.

 

Okuma Aims high with the Helios Air Baitcaster
This familiar looking reel is built off the original popular Helios Series but cranks things up by utilizing magnesium to effectively go on a diet. This lightweight reel weighs in at only 5.7 ounces and is designed to be a top notch performer while still remaining surprisingly affordable.
New Tackle Warehouse Exclusives from Daiwa!
The new Steez XT and Tatula XT rod lineups introduced at ICAST 2015. But As if that wasn't enough, the manufacturer has been working closely with e-tail giant, TackleWarehouse, to bring an entirely different budget friendly lineup to be sold exclusively at their store.
Peak Performance on a Budget? Pinnacle's Producer XT 30 Spinning Reel
Sneaking in well under the one-hundred dollar mark, the affordable Pinnacle Producer XT spinning reels are both easy on the eyes and the wallet. Despite some ominous competition, just how well does this reel fare in real-world situations? We nabbed a PRF 30 model from Tackle Warehouse to find out for ourselves!
13 Fishing’s Trick Shop is Open for Customization
13 Fishing, a company that has become synonymous with pushing the fun envelope for anglers, is breaking new ground once again with their Trick Shop reel components, by allowing anglers to easily personalize their reels and make them truly their own.
The Budget Friendly Daiwa Exceler Spinning Reel
Despite the burgeoning economy, one area of the tackle market that continues to grow and thrive is budget segment of the market - especially with rods and reels. By budget, we're referring to any rod or reel below the $100 threshold. Today, we take a look at a popular new introduction in this segment by Daiwa. Introducing the Exceler 2500SH spinning reel.
Shimano Unveils New Citica I Series Low Profile Reels for Mainstream Anglers
Information on new products from a number of manufacturers continues to be leaked or released in greater frequency, which is the norm this time of year as manufacturers gear up for ICAST. As a preemptive strike ahead of this year’s show Shimano is unveiling the new Citica I Series baitcasting reels.
Product Refresh : Pfleuger's Patriarch Baitcasting Reel
It's been some time since we've taken a look at Pfleuger's baitcasting reels. A company's whose stated tradition is to provide the best bang for your buck recently re-imaged one of their long standing low profile reels. We managed to get our hands on one recently, and here now is our review of Pfleuger's Patriarch baitcasting reel.

The Next TWS Variant : Daiwa's Tatula HD
By all accounts, Daiwa has gone all in with their new TWS line guide, a.k.a. T-Wing Gen 2, and why not? The Tatula has been a good success for the company with the only real drawback, in some eyes, being the reel's line capacity. This past Fall, Daiwa stepped up to the plate and addressed this with the Tatula HD low profile baitcasting reel.

How Low Can Daiwa Go? The Refreshed AIRD Baitcaster
In October of 2013, we wrote about a surprising little cost conscious reel from Daiwa called the Exceler. This $99.99 reel was a very solid performer and a welcome introduction from a company perceived to only truly care about high end product. Well, Daiwa is attacking that perception and price point once again. Here's our take on the re-imaged Daiwa AIRD 100.
Product Insight : Zillion TWS a.k.a. Tatula Z?
Though the Daiwa Zillion TWS scored well in our official review, something about the reel did not sit right with me - literally. After my very first cast with that reel, from the first moment I wrapped my hand around it, I experienced a sense of deja vu. Thing is, it wasn't TD Zillion deja vu, it was something else.
The Surprising Daiwa Ballistic EX Spinning Reel
Carbon is the new wonder material for fishing reel manufacturers and why not? The material is pervasive in countless other industries from cycling to automotive where stresses and strains structural parts are under far greater loads than that of a fishing reel frame...
TT Shootout : Zillion TWS vs Chronarch CI4+
We've reviewed the Chronarch CI4+ and we've reviewed the Zillion TWS. Nothing gets the collective juices of the TackleTour readership flowing more than a good old fashioned, all scores barred, head to head, specification to specification, performance metric to performance metric comparison.
Daiwa Re-Images Their Stalwart : Zillion TWS
So how does the new, Zillion stack up against history, the competition, and its place in Daiwa's lineup? We've taken it apart, put it back together, fished it, and tested it against it's own family and the competition. In this three part series, we bring you the good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly behind Daiwa's new, Zillion TWS.
Shimano Continues Their Roll : Chronarch CI4+
Carbon framed reels are the next big thing. We've already seen a handful of carbon framed spinning reels produced, but now low profile baitcasting reels are being made from this same material. Manufacturers can match or even better the weight of these reels compared to magnesium counterparts and bring them in for a lower price.
Energy to Burn: Quantum Energy E100 SPTA
Before I was given the chance to test the Energy E100 SPTA, how many Quantum baitcasters have I owned? Try none! While I owned and fished a few of their saltwater spinning reels several years ago, their baitcasting reels just never found their way into my arsenal. Although not immediately new to the market, the latest Energy PT reels are totally new to me and I was really curious to finally get one out on the water.
Finesse at the Entry Level: Abu Garcia's Revo S20 Spinning Reel
Abu Garcia's moderately-priced Revo SX20 is a pleasing reel to look at. The first obvious resemblance that came to mind is that it looks similar to my Shimano Stradic Ci4+. The body is comprised of an X-Craftic alloy frame and C6 carbon body for reduced weight and added corrosion protection.
A Proven Concept, the 13 Fishing "C" Series Low Profile Baitcaster
Now 13 Fishing is challenging naysayers once again with the introduction of high-end low profile baitcasters with their Concept Series. We have already taken a close look at the entry level Concept A and today we put the higher end Concept C through the paces.
Finesse at the Entry Level: Abu Garcia's Revo S20 Spinning Reel
Now spanning several levels of pricing and performance, the Revo family continues to enjoy epic popularity. In this review we dissect the entry- level Revo spinning reel—the S20 model—to see if it has mean performance that exceeds its friendly price tag.

Quantum's First Magnesium Framed Reel, the Tour Mg!
There was a point in time, several years ago, when someone showed me a reel from Quantum, my first thought before even handling the reel was "heavy". Well, at ICAST 2013, Quantum impressed me with what I found hard to believe was their very first foray into a reel made of this material. Here now is our look at Quantum's Tour Mg!

The Baitcaster Shimano needed to get right, the Curado I Series
While most reel manufacturers have a flagship reel that is used to showcase the latest and greatest technology the majority of the sales volume comes from reels in the value and mainstream segment. This hotly contested portion of the market is arguably the most important to reel manufacturers and it is here where the Shimano Curado Series has dominated for so many years...
