Shimano Exage / Catana

Post by NewBass » Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:42 pm

Hi All
New to this forum and am looking at getting into spinning for bass, as opposed to boat fishing due to health reasons , :( anyway's am going to use Shakespeare Salt Bass, and Shakespeare Alpha X bass rods, now for reels, don't want to spend a shedfull on reels and have been told that Shimano Exage and Catana reels are good vfm for getting started on spinning to see how things go and maybe move up if I and my body are happy with it :-S can anyone give any opinions good or otherwise on these reels.... :-/ all info / advice gratefully received... :-h many thanks

Sean.

I've got an Exage 4000. It's a compact reel, smooth running and beautiful line lay. Haven't used it a great deal so far but I find it a very good reel. Difficult to improve on I'd say.

ive got the rear drag exage and its a fine little reel. probably a little small on the salt bass tho, fine if just for spinning but wont be any good with leads and bait
