Depends on size of lures and target species.I assume you mean actual spinning, rather than lure fishing in general? Just people often confuse the two. Spinning is fishing with spinners, most often in lines and even for pike, not many will come in over 30g unless you start using big bucktails.

Perch and Pike Lure/spinning/jigging etc. I use it with braid so line capacity isn't a issue. I've ony had chance to use it a handful of times, shame really as it's a lovely reel. I got into smaller spinning reels through my US relatives who used them for Musky/Walleye etc. I bought this reel after talking to a French guy who was using one for Pike/Perch on a water I was Carp fishing on a couple of years ago.

The Stradic certainly is certainly capable but you'd probably want more line capacity so just get a bigger one.
have a look here

I've got the Shimano Stradic 2500 FK HG, lovely reel, few bits I don't like, none folding handle, no spare spool, and no back wind like a lot of US reels but you quickly get used to it.

How about a Drennan esox piker.. 1.75 or 2lb
Thing is a good spinning rod will be fast action, otherwise you canít really work the lure properly. Itís a trade off like rods for most types of angling
Reel wise, you could do a lot worse than a Daiwa bg or Penn clash
Havenít actually seen the LT reels yet, but they look great on paper; especially the 5 & 6000 sizes for heavier use

Have been doing a lot of spinning over the winter but have not managed to find a rod / reel combo I get on with.

What Reel suggestions do you guys have ? I'm sure I saw someone on here a while back recommending the Daiwa Fuego but cannot find it when searching.

I brought a Daiwa Ninja reel ( 3000 ) it is maybe a tiny bit small and just wondering if I upped my budget if I would notice much of a difference ? Ninja was about £50 and looking at what is available I would probably need to double that to go up to a better grade of reel .
Been looking at :
Daiwa Fuego 4000 LT
Daiwa 17 Exceler LT
Shimano Stradic Ci4 FB
Shimano Ultegra FB Reel

Anyone have any of the above they would recommend ?

Same with rods really - brought a Ninja 8 foot 10-40 gram but I find it really 'tippy' does not really compress much on casting regardless if lure is 30 or 60 grams, and find myself having to put in a lot of effort compared with other rods I have used, had a few fish on it and it just didn't feel soft enough for me.

Brought a Drennan ( Esox ) Spinflex in the same 8ft 10-40 gram and it is much nicer to cast with & play fish but if anything a little too soft ! Could do with another foot maybe for casting, and a little more backbone to it.

Looked at hundreds over the last weeks but huge majority seem to be fast tapered & not progressive action.
Savage gear ones all look good but looking at the video they don't have the action I want.

Can anyone recommend a rod they use ? It will be mostly for fishing from a punt on open large lake.

Thanks
