I've been meaning to join this site ever since I moved back to MI in 2014. I'm looking forward to chatting about activities and issues that are in my backyard and community. I'm reassessing my collection of fishing reels and wanted to ask - what are some of your older, favorite spinning reels, mostly around the ultra lite size? I have a few ultra lite spinning reels that I have kept around as spares and ice fishing but they are low-end reels and perform that way. The one I would keep is left-handed but I'm right-handed. I would be happier replacing the 4 reels that I'm not using for whatever reason with 2 older but nicer reels; nicer gear I WANT to use, less clutter. I'm considering models like the old Mitchell 408 or an Abu Garcia Gold Max2 (had one; dropped in the lake). Instant anti-reverse would be nice (but not required) and I hate the "quick fire", trigger reels for opening the bail. Does anyone know when instant anti-reverse become widely available? There are lots of modern options but they are either pricey, or made of too much plastic. Even my "new" reels are 13 yrs. old. I'm putting my list together of older, used, higher end models so I can watch Ebay or other places. Thanks!
