The Medallion GT Spinning Reel's entire body structure (frame, sideplates, rotor) is crafted from an advanced carbon fiber material (Carbonite) that’s both incredibly light and very strong. The rigidity of the sideplates is such that they virtually eliminate flex, keeping the shafts and gears precisely aligned over an extended service life. Translation: this affordable Medallion reel is extremely well-balanced, extra-smooth, and very durable! Lightweight double-anodized machined-aluminum spool; stainless steel bail wire with ceramic line roller; premium six-bearing system with double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings and Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse; high-efficiency stainless steel/fiber drag; diecast aluminum handle. FREE aluminum spare spool.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by so far so good only had this reel in the water once . Feels pretty good. Very solid construction. Paired it with a 6 ft prodigy rod with 10lb berkley flourocarbon. Looks great and feels great. If it is anything like the brownings ive had in the past it should last for quite some time March 7, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Reel Well, I haven't tested it out on the water yet, but I've received it today and it feels like a sturdy well-built reel. It's much lighter than my Quantum Energy reel, even though its 1 size bigger. The bail is constructed very well and looks a little better than my Quantum as well. My quantum has some problems with getting the line into the line roller right away, this reel does not. The bail click is also very easy to activate once you turn the handle unlike some other reels that force you to jerk the handle pretty hard. The drag feels great, and has an even distribution unlike some other reels that take a hard jerk to activate the drag system. Compared to my $170 Quantum, this reel seems to match it in terms of quality. The only thing different is that I can tell my Quantum requires less effort to reel because of how insanely smooth it is. Nonetheless, this reel is decently smooth as well for its price. Depending on how you look at it, the reels grip is either a pro or a con because of its size. It has a little bigger grip than some reels, and my Quantum for sure. I know when I'm in a hurry to start reeling after a hookset, it's going to require less effort to find the grip though. The colors match very well together as well, and is a very nice looking reel. February 24, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Gift Just got two of these reels as birthday presents. Used them on five trips now, caugt several bass from 1.5 to 5 lbs. Very impressed with both reels, there is no line twist at all. First spinning reels that I've used in years that will not twist mono. Reels are exceptionally smooth and lite. Time will be the test for durability. January 25, 2010

A: 
I just got the 25C in the mail, I will use 6 or 8 pound mono with it. It's a medium size reel that works well on a standard 6'6 or 7 foot rod.

Definately want a smaller reel than a 40 series for 6-8 lb test. 15-25 is the ideal range. IMO

A: 
I would say the md-25C. I just purchased several and use 6-8 lb line on them. The reels are not too heavy in weight and they have good drags on them.

A: 
The MD-25C (item number 38-351-482-00) has a recommended line of 8 pound test. This size reel should give you the ability to use either test with plenty of line on the reel between respools.

A: 
I would suggest using a ultra light noodle rod in the 7' to 8' length for a matchup to this reel. Suggestions for rod maybe a Daiwa Spinmatic, Phenix Mirage, Shimano Compre or Bass Pro shop's Microlite series.

A: 
Rod size and style depend on presentation. You will need a spinning rod for your reel. Since this is the smallest of it's class, you may prefer to go with a lighter reel as this will match up better for most applications.

I have paired with a 5'6'' Bass Pro Extreme spinning rod and it is perfect. Is the lightest rod/reel combo I have ever used.

A: 
This reel is in the Ultra Light category. A complementary rod should also be in the Ultra Light Category.

You can try a 5'-5'6" long rod with an Ultra Light - Medium action. That combination should work well for you.

Remember though, this set up will work great for the smaller fish. If you hook into a larger fish, you will have the thrill of your life.
