    I'm looking to buy 2 more spinning reels for channel cats and I'm considering the Shakespeare 2560 or the A180. The 2560 is a great reel i have 2 of them now and work great. However i am also considering the A180 but the downside of them are they are more plastic. Here are pics of the 2.

    I couldn't find any info on the 2560 but i know walmart carries them. The prices are about the same.

    A180 $18.70
    2560 $19.99

    What do you guys think of the 2? Which would you get?

    The A180 holds more line than the 2560.
