    Does anyone know anything about the Pflueger Trion baitcasting reel as to suitability for catfishing. I have a Pflueger ultra lite spinning reel that I have been happy with. I mostly use Ambassadors but was looking for a little more capacity at a more affordable rate.

    Never tried one, but there are a lot of good reels out there. I think you will fine that the 2 biggest names you will find is Penn and Ambasadore here.

    Charliedog, I used one of those earlier this summer, and was very impressed with the smoothness of it. I was told it has a very good drag system, too, but that is the only time I've used one. I've been wanting to buy one ever since, but haven't (I'm too 'reel' poor already). If you purchase one, let us know. I like the Abu's too, but am always open for another reel. I think we must have a sampling of almost every affordable brand around here, including at least one older pflueger, that I've had for 20 years or more.
