Does anyone here have any experience with the Mr. Crappie Slab Shaker spinning reel? I'm seriously considering getting one for an Eagle Claw 6 piece Trailmaster rod.

I've had terrible luck with the mr crappie bait casters and hate my 12' slab shaker rod. Thumbs down on any product with ole Wally's name on it.

I think there are much better options -- like anything with Daiwa or Shimano in the name.

I'm trying to stay extremely budget oriented here. So now I'm considering a Mitchell Avocet for less than $30. It's light weight and works well (according to ads) with a 4 lb. line.

Take a look at the shimano sienna 500fd or pflueger trion tri20x. Both great reels for 29.99.

Then I agree with Kevin22 about the Shimano Sienna. I would go with the 1000 or 2500 size, though.

Check out the okuma reels, good reel at a good price.

I have good luck from the ultra light Shakespear reels I get from Wally World. I,ve used them several times fishing below Barkley Dam for stripe bass and I,ve caught some big ones using them! They,ve held up good for me for years.

Joe, for a small reel that avocet is a good one along with the 2 Kevin mentioned. I'd try to put my hands on them on your rod if possible to check grip and balance.
