Hey all i'm new here, so forgive me for any noob questions (and my bad english) . :)

I was wondering what Fixed Spool you guys could recommend me, im looking for something that isn't to heavy in weight, i only fish sand beaches but with alot of current mostly, i can use to fish for a bit of everything like sole, eel(not conger), whiting, (light) bass. something in the range of £80-100. Now i'm using a Ryobi ZF6000 but its weight is a but much for me, the rod i'm using is a DAM Sumo 3,90m but i'm thinking about selling both of them to buy something new.

So far i've looked for one of those Shimano Aerlex but haven't been able to find one where i live, i've read something in the Sea Angler magazine about the K2 Powerplay reel, but i haven't found any opinions about it yet.

Thx

Hi Mate,,,welcome to WSF.
This months sea angler mag has a review of 10 fixed spools,,all well under the money you are looking at.
I use the Penn 70 with a 15 ft rod and have had no problems at all,,,not too heavy.
,, good line lay. Pay around £70,but Gerry`s of Morecambe will do a deal if bought with a Penn rod.

Hope this helps bud,

Terrry F. :)

Hi mate and welcome to the forum:D , In my opinion the Shakespeare K2 is well worth the money,or if you want something smaller in size try the Leeda Ikon Bass reel,I have just got one myself and it is great value.I got it from Jim's in penzance (Cornwall) for £16 :D

Hey thx for the quick reactions everyone

I've sent an e-mail to jims to ask how much the shipping costs are first cus those seem to be high in some Uk tackle shops.

+ i checked the sea angler magazine but those are all spinning reels, right now i only need a new reel for beachcasting to replace my ryobi. For Bass spinning i already use my abu cardinal

Hi bassbe.
The spinning reels were in the June issue.
Check the July issue for the beach fixed spools.
Probably take a liittle longer to reach you in Belgium but there is some good info.
All the best bud.

Might be a bit off the wall but I have an Abu Cardinal 505r it's capable of holding 300 yards of 12lb line and is robust enough for light surf work-I use it with a 10' Bass rod and can also double up as a spinning reel when the mood takes me :)

How far can you cast with that setup? I need a fixed spool which i can use to cast pretty far, since the local pier here is closed off i can only fish from the beach :mad:

I use the bass rod for fishing in,and just beyond the surf and so don't need to cast very far. I use a 30lb shockleader and a 3oz weight and can easily put a weighted trace about 60 or 70 yards using an old DAM 10' surf rod. If I want to fish further out I use a beachcaster and Abu multiplier. For spinning I can put a dexter wedge about 70 yards which is more than ample. The Sea Angler you have reviewed this reel along with others purely as a spinning reel. Hope this helps.

Hi BassBE !

I have Shimano Exage 2500 and 4000. They are a bit light for beachfishing.
I also have Daiwa Emcast 5500 and 5500plus for my beach fishing. 7 and 10 ballbearings respectevly.

YOU CANNOT BUY A BETTER FIXED SPOOL REEL FOR BAECH FISHING UNDER £100 THAN DAIWA EMCAST!

For your needs the Daiwa Emcast 5000 or 4500 will be perfect. They weigh 625g.
They cost around £60 or for the plus models £80.
