The Electric Fishing Reel – Buyers Guide

The newest and greatest addition to the modern fisherman’s repertoire is the creation of the electric fishing reel. Before this essential addition to the fisherman’s gear was invented, it was all guess work when came to length of line out of the spool and exact drag and speed of the line. The LCD readout on the newest electric big game equipment is easy to read and help the fisherman make decisions when reeling in a big game fish. 

The best electric fishing reel for the money is the Daiwa Power Assist 3000. This item sells for between $2900-$3100 brand new. Many of these products can be purchased used for much less, but it is important to always verify the condition of  your equipment before closing the deal on the purchase.

The next best electric deep drop reel available is Daiwa Tanacom Bull TB 1000 Electric 70 KG Drag. The price for a new version of this model is $850 but EBay currently has several available for $650 from more than a few fishing equipment clearance websites.

The Daiwa Tanacom Bull TB 1000  70 KG Drag is a less expensive version of Daiwa’s top of the line electric fishing  model, the Daiwa Power Assist 3000 Electric. This model is still an excellent and easy to manage item for the price.

Another great reel is the Pinnacle MATRIX-700 Electric Fishing Reel. An inexpensive reel fresh out of the box at $535 it can be found on EBay or other reliable websites for less than $400. The Pinnacle MATRIX-700 has all the features of the more expensive reels but it does not sacrifice performance. The reel is smooth and the LCD readout is durable and easy to read.

If it is within budget the best reel to buy is the Daiwa Power Assist 3000 Electric Reel. It is the Rolls Royce of the electric reels and if it can be found used for less than $1500 it is a must purchase.
