    Ok, So I'm looking for a new cat reel, I have my dads old 5000 A but I tried cleaning it and it can still olny cast like 30 feet... :mad: I was really to scared to take it apart though. ANYWAY is there any spinning reels that have baitclickers? I dont need anything too macho, just somthing that will hold like 5-30 lb fish...

    OK. I'll enter the mix. Was at the bait shop the other day. Looked at a Penn bait runner. Believe it was a model 550 or 5500, somethin along those lines. The bait alarm was pretty loud. Much louder than the ones on Shimano or Okuma. Gonna get the Mrs. one. Shes kinda fond of the bait runner feature.
