    have any of you used these reels the finace has 2 of them and loves them. i also must say pretty impressed with them myself a few weeks ago the uncle decided to try the all night catfishing expereience and borrowed one of them on a 11ft elminator rod and tackled a 62 blue on a skip jack head. for the money these are some awesome reels

    I have an okuma BB 90 and love it. It is actually a little bigger than I need but I have enough to battle jaws if I hook him. I have a classic pro 302 and a couple 202 baitcasters and like them also. I think I am going to get a couple of the BR 65s next. I love the bait runner mode. I don't know how I got along without it before.

    A friend of mine used a Corrida BR 65 last night and he loved it. I have a Shimano 6500B Baitrunner and I thought it was great especially for the money.

    I am also thinking about getting one, but how does the baitrunner thing work?
