Thread: Which reels should I get...
03-12-2012, 07:12 PM #21
Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I think I'm gonna go with a Ming Yang CL60 and a Omoto 6000 csm. I'm gonna wait a little while before I purchase them, like a few weeks or so, or until RT gets in the fish slings. I'm hopin to do alot of fishin this spring, and hopefully I have a much better season than last year, which was one of my worst. Anyway, I'm also gonna try some of that invicta line probably in 50lb test, and I'm also gonna try some of those wide gap circles. The price is too good to pass up.

I tried being all slick and low key listing the specs of an Omoto compared to a Pro Rocket, hoping somebody would go,"Oh my god, it looks the same, except Omoto has more stuff and better specs out of the box."..
So.. Let me do it..
Oh my god, it looks the same, except Omoto has more stuff, and at a cheaper price with better warranty and free shipping.

I buy Abus and Penn.Not because there are no other good reels ,but because i have had success with those brands and i know what i am getting.When you have success at something for 20 years it only makes sense to continue on that path.There is a whole world of quality gear out there it's up to you what fits your budget and feels good in your hands.

My next truck will be a Toyota..

Omoto aint built one yet.
Probably never will but Omoto makes some good stuff as I've said.
They've been making reels for a long time.

The Chevy has been nothing but trouble. Certified means you get to not pay for the piece of crap falling apart for the first few months. At least in Columbus to a certain largest dealer there (ill leave the name to that) I had to take it in 8 times thus far from everything to leaking axles to shorts in the door. The warranty ran out and because it wasn't 3 of the same item and it took a little bit for those things to happen I am sort of stuck with it until I get ahead on it. Because of this one truck. I will never by another Chevy as I know Certified means nothing after alittle while. Especially after talking to the District Rep for Chevy and getting explained exactly what Certified gets you. The "tests" aren't exactly the greatest inspections to thoroughly go through a vehicle. In a global market you would be suprised where the parts come from.
Just because it's final assembly may be somewhere in North America. Doesn't mean the parts that go into it are assembled here. Also north america definitely doesn't automatically = quality.
Order of Quality in Todays market in my opinion with the experiences I have had.
Hyundai (best most reliable vehicle I have owned)
Honda (girlfriend owned this. Reliable and safe, she wrecked it (her fault) we rolled 3 times and I drove it 20 miles home) worked there for a bit I know they are crazy about QC
Jeep (Wifes current vehicle..has needed very little)
Dodge (Current hauling truck 1986 Dodge 1 ton starts every time even after hard winters no other experience with dodges)
Chevy (suburban multiple issues now and 1990s truck that the trans went out on they were notorious for that)
Haven't owned a Ford my dad has though and he got the whole nickle and dime thing too
