fox reels

Recommended Posts

I found a good deal on a fox stratos 10000E it is a baitrunner and was wondering if it was any good. Right now I use a Rapala shift on a 10' mh shimano clarus but am getting tired of having to swap reel from rod to rod

Would the good deal be only $120 for the reel? ;)

I can't comment on how good the reel is, but I bet it would be a decent reel. I use a Daiwa Black Widow (lowest on the daiwa reel totem pole) and have no complaints. If its a really good deal, i say the convenience of not having to change the reel onto different rods would be good enough to pull through with the order.

I think I may have found my go to place for carp supplies after the order of the reel. So far it casts smooth and was easy to set up I am yet to catch a fish on it yet though I did manage a decent size pike on my sons 5' ugly stick in the mean time. Prices and selection is good and I have put together another order with the basics. Just not sure what to use for the feeders.

I've been going to Simon for almost a year. Usually do a pickup once every 2 weeks. Have absolutely no complaints.  

 

When you say you don't know what to use for the feeders, do you mean what to pack around them?

Mainline pineapple is part of my spod mix that caught that 33 pounder. Smells so damn good. I have the envy stuff as well, but havent used it yet. Planning on using it next weekend on the canal

That looks like a great reel for carp , and getting 2 spools is a bonus !   It looks like it can handle those brutes very well .  I like to set the back drag very lightly , especially when I am using a bolt /hair rig .  They basically hook themselves and the line just peels off before you get to the rod ....a real blast ! 

JMO .....yes the pineapple smells up the whole house real nice . I have it in my maize ......makes me hungry smelling the stuff .  Going to give it a try in the morning .....getting shack wacky , haven't been fishing for a couple of weeks ......
