Re: Looking for a new reel for a Tica rod.
Now, apparently everyone is assuming this is a SPINNING rod. But, from reading the original post, it doesn't state spinning or casting. So with that in mind...if its spinning, I would go with a Tica Dolphin 10000. I got mine late august last year and fished Fall Drum and Stripers. It casts beautifully and if budget is an issue, they are less that $100. Now, if its casting you're looking for...well I'd have to suggest the Penn 525, you can pick them up new for about 150, however you can seriously look around and get them for close to 100 used and in great condition.....
