    Hey Guys (gals),


    Has anyone had experience with the Accurate spinning reel? Forgot the model number and too lazy right now to go on their site and get it.


    Saw it first hand for the first time at the Hall show. They looked incredible and felt great, but waiting for a smaller model.


    I'm a straight up "G-Pimp Tackle Ho", and I spend bookoo bucks on gear, but can't see the justification in the $800 price tag???Edited by: TonyPltnmHook

    I have HEARD that it is supposed to put the Shimano Stella STL20000FA & the Daiwa Saltiga SA-Z6000GT to shame - Very interested in seeing this reel.

    Joey, remember we saw it at the Fred Hall Show. It sure looked sweet but for 800 bucks it better have some microchip in it or something that leads your boat right to wherever the fish are.

    That's what I'm sayin Joey. It's an awesome reel but notoriously overpriced (that's Accurate for you).

    SG,


    I agree that the reel is incredible and I do want one, but not worth the $800.00 and change. I'd pay 5 maybe 600.00 but 800.00 is taking advantage of the consumer. IMOEdited by: TonyPltnmHook

    I'm definitely a Saltiga fan and would more than likely spend the money on that reel over the Stella if I needed a big game class Spinning reel(don't care for the Stella too much, I don't like the drag on it as opposed to the Saltiga...much better). And I have actually played around with the Accurate model at the Hall show but never fished it obviously. I'd sure like to talk with someone who has.

    For $800 bucks it comes in a female model that talks dirty to you and keeps you entertained when the bite is slow.....jk :uhoh:

    I agree with you Tony, for $550 you could get a VanStaal with the same specs and like accurate its American made. www.VanStaal.com

    I have a Stella and honestly I'm not impressed and WISH I had the Saltiga Spinner. I get a kick out of the tiny Stella's like for trout that they have that are so pricey - WOW.


    I'm also not a fan of the Van Staal (Spinning Reel) and have not heard anything good yet about their fly reels but they look cool.


    Sorry getting a bit off track

    Tony,


    I know guys that have landed stripped Marlin, Sails, BFT's and YFT's on Big Saltiga spinning reels and the Van Staal....even Penns. Still I agree that the Accurates are ridiculous (in a good way!).Edited by: TonyPltnmHook

    Batty, I agree, they do use those reels.....they use the same reels we do in terms of the more commercial named manufacturers (Diawa, Shimano, Penn, Quantum). Most of the world doesn't use Accurates and AVETs(for example). Mexico, Asia and especially Indonesia is huge on the use of AVETS, and Australia & Europe happen to be big on Accurate....but still it's mixed around the world.
