I got a couple of shimano symetres had no problems with them and all I fish is salt I think they are around $100. I personally like the 4000 series but some people prefer the 2500

Shimano Spheros. My brother has one and it's been a workhorse for him. I need to get one myself.

Default Fishing line

Not trying to hijack here, but we have overwhelming support for shimano....My addendum question here is what fishing line to use for spec red combo...? I have 30lb powerpro which is strong....however doing a quick bait change or re-tying is a beyotch....Wont cut with my side cutters on my needle nose, usually have to stop and get out the fingernail clippers...Do I change line or just get a better tool to cut the line? Just wondering what you guys do...

i use okuma and 30 lb PP. carry a small pair of scissors cuts PP like butter.
Polmar knot is quick and easy to tie. I have a 4" long pair of scissors that fit in my back pocket along w/ a 8" section of broom handle in case i get snagged.

Braid is the way to go for spinners.....holds more line and no aggravating line twist to deal with.

I just bought a Penn 260 Slammer. It is the best spinner I've ever had. (Not that I've had many) $100 on amazon.com

I always tie a 3-4ft floro leader to my braid for the low vis and the easier bait switch. Learn to tie a uni to uni knot if you do not lnow already and this will make life much easier.
