Pros and Cons of the Top Saltwater Fishing Reels

Penn Slammer 460 Spinning Reel

Pros – This reel has one of the main features anglers search for in a reel, which is the infinite anti-reverse system. It also has 6 bearings to provide you with the ultimate experience in smooth performance. Other features that make this reel stand out are the metal housing, HT 100 drag washer and techno balanced rotor. The Penn Slammer 460 reel has no problem casting long distances and offers a 4.6 to 1 gear ratio for retrievals.

Cons – The main complaint about the Penn Slammer 460 is that this reel is very heavy. It weighs about 19 ounces. After several hours of use you will begin to notice the weight and it will be something that you will need time to get use to. It may even be too heavy for many anglers to use comfortably.

Quantum Inshore XT Spinning Reel

Pros – This reel has a lot to offer the serious angler that is searching for that big catch of the day. It is designed to provide protection from the saltwater while still giving you a smooth retrieval every time. It offers a 5.2 to 1 gear ratio, ceramic drag and is made with both metal body and side cover houses. All in all, this Quantum Inshore spinning reel performed perfectly.

Cons – At this time there are no bad points to report about this reel.

These are just a few of the saltwater fishing reels that are available for your pleasure and fishing enjoyment. They all seem to work great for saltwater fishing while being durable enough to last years when properly cared for.
