Right now I'm using a shimano corsair. It works very well. But I'm thinking of buying an Abu Garcia baitcast.

i use a quantum iron it is a far better choice than any listed here.i have heard lots of complaints from many different people about abu.i have fished with this reel for the last 8 years with no problems.the main thing is to maintain it regularly

I myself have a Shimano Calcutta 250. Have never tried an Abu but almost bought one becuase of the lower lower cost.

I think most complaints of a bad reel come not from bad manufacturing but from the user not taking care of their equipment.

But having said that...if you can afford to get the Calcutta, you should.

I'm using a shimano corsair 400. Have used this reel for about 6 or 7 years with not one problem......

The Shimano calcutta is an excellent reel in my opinion. It has a really smooth drag, and it's easy to take apart and do maintainance. If anyone has a problem with the drag sticking on their calcutta, let me know. I figured out how to fix it. The corsair was my first baitcaster, those reels always had a problem with the brake not holding. They improved it when they went to the gold model after the silver one.

I own several Ambassadors and the Calcutta 400. Has to say the Calcutta is a superior reel

I have a Calcutta 400. It's been outsatnding for 6 years now and not one problem with it. It still holds up big chinooks in the Atnarko. Had a corsair 400 as backup, the gold one, it's junk.

I have several shimano corsair's and they all work very well.It's an excellant reel. I've never had any problems with it, the drag is smooth, the casting is great and the gear ratio is good.
