    who makes the best most reliable closed face casting reel?

  • #2
    This is a tough question to answer. Its like asking whats the best American beer. There obviously isn't a good american beer just like there isn't really a good spincasting reel made these days. If I were you I would go with a spinning or baitcasting reel, and you can never go wrong with Diawa, Shimano, or Abu Garcia. However if you have to use a "closed face" reel, find an old Zebco 33, the metal kind with a bait clicker.

            I really liked the Zebco 33 until they started making them out of plastic. The plastic will not allow the face of the real to stay inplace. You can't even buy Coffee in a metal can anymore.
