A Quick Guide to the Best Bass Fishing Reels on the Market Today

Shimano Calais Baitcast Reels – This series of bass fishing reels has something for everyone and is perhaps the most comprehensive range ever manufactured as a result. No stone is left unturned. The entire range of reels is made of stainless steel and aluminium, and thus has an immense strength that will not let you down when you have a bite. However, there are different reels available depending on what you want from the reel itself. For example, the Shimano Calais 100A is designed for low profile fishing. It has an aluminium flex-free frame and is extremely lightweight in terms of the handling. As such, it is really easy to control, accurate and very efficient, regardless of what the weather may be doing at the time! The Shimano Calais 200A and 201A have a little more flex in it and also have an excellent cast control mechanism. On the other hand, the Shimano Calais 200APV and 200ASV are the most powerful rods in the range. The paddle grips can only be described as oversized, which lends itself to the fact that these rods are perfectly designed for casting again and again throughout the day. They are both comfortable and offer a freshwater version in the former and a saltwater version in the latter so you can literally use these models for big bass fishing trips wherever you go!

Quantum Energy PT Baitcast Reels – The Quantum reels offer a standard brand image that is as impressive as the products themselves. They offer fantastic proven performance and extreme versatility that few other baitcast reels offer. As a result, you can rely on them not to let you down, regardless of the circumstances in which you use them, including colder and more extreme weather. No matter whether you fish quickly or slowly, this range can adapt to your needs because they all have 3 retrieve speeds. You can vary the weight and enjoy the freedom that any one of these rods gives you.

As you can see, the range of reels available for bass fishing enthusiasts is immense and all of the ones listed above are readily available for you to tap into straight away. They are immensely popular and on the top ten lists all over the world, so all you have to do now is weight up the options and decide on the one you really want!
