    Recommend a good spinning reel around $100 (finesse fishing bass) plus or minus some? I have a pflueger supreme mg, but it turns out that parts are hard to find. (I plan on buying multiples) Thanks.

    I personally like the Johnny Morris signature series, JM 20H, and JM 40H, because they both have large diameter spools. Outdoor World Rod and Reel Repair has always had any replacement part that I have ever needed in stock for immediate delivery and at reasonable pricing. The reason for the larger spool diameter is that in the long run, the line will just last longer. i.e., Large diameter spool = smoother, longer casts. Bigger spool diameter = less wraps of line to fill. Less wraps of line = less twists when cast. So what ever reel you do buy, try to get as large of a spool diameter as possible.

    PS, I repair reels as a hobby at my home and do some product testing on my own. Currently, the two best brands I have experienced so far are the New Lew's Spinning Reels by Lynn Reeves and the Johnny Morris Signature Series, but alas, the New Lew's reels have a smaller diameter spool than the JM series.

      I'm surprised nobody here has suggested using a stump-grinder.
