I'm looking for bait cast reels to use on my trolling rods.

I don't want junk and I don't want to break the bank either. Cabelas is running Garcia 5600's on sale at $55 each and I may not be able to do better that that but I thought I'd see what ya'll have to suggest first.

I would check at Grizzly Jig,they sell a bunch of baitcasters that are nice for trolling and very affordable.

The Bass Pro Bionic pluses are compact and work real well. I purchased used Shimano Curados cuz I can let line out and then rotate the handle to stop the line let out with one hand.

You may want to check out flipping reels as well. Then you can one touch let out line with the bail down and it stops when the bail is let up.

Those wally marshalls are nice! I would rather have a low profile than the round style(5500)!

I use my bass reels, as they get a little worn.I would highly recommend that you use low profile reels. The better the reel, the better the drag. bass pro had browning reels on sale last Xmas and I bought several
