This page is my answer to the most frequent question I get; "What is the best....?". These picks are based on my own formula for judging reliability, structural integrity, longevity, ergonomics, functionality, build quality, and features, each making up a portion of the total score. I include reels from all over the world, so you might see brands you've never heard of. Enjoy it, and you are always welcome to contact me with any questions or thoughts.
