13 fishing Decent Reel
« on: October 27, 2017, 08:22:24 AM »
Wondering if anyone has bought or used one of these. I like in line reels but the usual drawback is line retrieval speed. This one is a multiplier, and pretty much lighter than almost ant ul spin reel. Waiting for my Cabelas points to kick in... ;)

I own (6) 6061 reels from 13fishing. Quick retrieve when reeled and smooth on the drop. Very happy with them.

Thx KP; I'll probably pull the trigger on that one. Fingers crossed for a good ice year!

I bought the 13 FreeFall for last season.  I fished it extensively and I do like it, easy drop, even with light jigs in cold weather, retrieves line smoothly and quickly. For how expensive it was, I do have one big complaint:  the drag sucks! It has a very herky jerky drag with a rough start up.....anything but smooth......because I use light line, I have to be pretty careful with the drag if hook a better fish. Other than that, it performs as advertised. I bought mine online, if I did it again, I would buy it at a retail store so that I could check out the drag before I bought it.

Appreciate the report since I am sort of picky when it comes to drag. :P I already bought it though so I'll make due. Since I used my Cabelas points and a coupon it was pretty much a freebie. ;)  I plan on using it with 4# so it will be on the heavy end of my jigging set ups which should give me a little more cushion.
