I just picked up a new Shimano NASCI 3000 for $99.

The way I justified spending that much was that the reel has 20lbs of drag in 3000 size - most reels that small have 10-15 lbs of drag. This makes it a more versatile inshore reel. One of my primary use cases is vertical jigging, so the light weight of a small reel with a composite frame was desirable.

I find the main advantage of higher end reels is better drags, and in the case of baitcasters, better cast control and bearings.

That said, I’m super happy with my $29 Pflueger Trion micro underspin. With 4-6 lb mono, you don’t need big drag, and what there is is pretty smooth.

With that drag you can load her up with higher test braid. Come back and do a review (I guess we will have to wait until after the big thaw). I, and I think a lot of others, gain a lot from the gear feedback.

I’m really happy with it - my fishing buddy and I have caught a couple of keeper striped bass on it.

I also realized that by taking it off of the 6’ slow action jigging rod and putting it on my 7’ medium action spinning rod, it will also be a good walleye/smallmouth rig.

I have a hard time doing full reviews though because I just don’t get to fish enough to really put the screws on my tackle. As some of you have probably realized, I can be a bit wordy. But with fishing tackle I usually don’t get past “it’s smooth. I like it.” Or whatever it does that I don’t like, nothing in that category on the NASCI yet.
