Recommended Posts

I am going to invest in some line counter reels. Would like to hear your ideas on which are the best for the money. Thanks

The Northern walleye guys swear by the Daiwa Sealine. If I were buying, I would choose it.

Another, and more accurate, option is metered braid.

I would second RPS.....Trolling and bottom bouncers I'm using braid anyways for the sensitivity so I have just been buying metered braid.

 

Then I buy relatively inexpensive combos when I find one I like and I don't have to worry about loaning them out or them getting broken ect.

I have a Shakespeare ATS that works well. Got two seasons on it now, it's a little clunky and squeaky but still does what it's supposed to.

I also have a Cabelas Depthmaster combo from BPS. The rod was crap but the reel is butter smooth. I'm going to buy more of these. If I'm not mistaken these are made by Okuma.

I bought a Scheels LC reel and they are made by Okuma and drag didn’t work from right out of box ...last one I will own.....I’ve ran the Cabela’s depthmaster years ago and they wore out quick....Sea line has been great reels for me.

It works like this:

A line counter measures the number of feet of line going out of the reel. This is based upon the number of revolutions of the spool. Variables exist, of course. How full you fill the spool matters. However, the function works to allow the user to consistently put a bait the same distance behind the boat. That allows the user to control the depth.

Metered line does exactly the same thing more accurately. No variables complicate matters. The user can use a bait casting or a spinning reel. In fact the only real criteria for the reel would be that it has a smooth drag.
