Pflueger 8225MG spinning reel
January 4, 2014
Bought this reel primarily for throwing small jigs for smallmouth when river fishing. Used on a St. Croix Rage 6'10" MLF rod. Started using it for crappie fishing to throw 1/16oz jigs on 8# fluorocarbon. Excels at casting light baits. Killer combo. Comes with 2 spools. 1 is braid ready, 1 for mono and fluoro.
Exceptional quality for this price point. Can't see spending any more for a spinning reel.
Pros:Light, smooth, and will cast very light lures without any issue.
