BG 60 & 90 I own a 60 and a 90 and have every snce they were first released. I have fished both reels on 7 foot two piece rods in Costa Rica for tarpon on two sperate occassions. Landing tarpon in the 100 to over 150 pounds class on 15# and 20# line was a blast and neither reel ever let me down. The drags are smooth and set correctly will add a real challenge to any anglers tug of war. I always take the 90 spooled with 20Lb when fishing local waters off San Diego on two and three day trips for Yellowfin, Yellowtai, Albies and Dorado. The perfect setup for pitching a chovy exacrtly where others can't with a converntional setup. July 9, 2012
Rock Solid Rock solid and still silky smooth ... I have a couple BG-60s I use for Tarpon. When a 150 lb Tarpon runs 100 yds, you the last thing you want to worry about is your drag failing. I have seen drag surge on some competitors reels during these runs - not a pretty sight. None of that on the BG-60 due to the low start-up inertia and large washers. Yes, it's not the prettiest reel on the market and the anti-reverse is not infinite which means there is some handle playback. But when I am fighting a Tarpon, I don't care how pretty it is, I just want it to perform. The BG's have just done that -- time and time again. I walk the docks whenever I am in the Florida Keys to see which reels the guides are using on their boats. If you do the same you see lot's of BG reels, because they are inexpensive and they are rugged. If you want looks, buy another reel. If you want a great value and workhorse that won't quit on you, buy a BG. February 13, 2007
BG 13, 15 I have two of the BG reels. I have a 30yr old BG13 which was my Grandfathers reel. My largest fish was a 6Ib Brown trout. The reel handled it with ease. I have no complaints at all with the BG13. I purchased the BG15 for walleye and Pike. I haven't had any issues with it. Two things I don't like about it are, The Drag adjustment is made of semi cheap plastic. It's works fine, it just feels a little cheap. The second has been mentioned before ,the auto reverse. If you are working a heavy bait, the handle kind of clicks back as the auto reverse engages. Slightly annoying, but doesn't affect the actual performance of the reel. I'm very pleased with it over all. March 13, 2013
Great reels I've got a BG15, BG30, and BG90. I've had great results with all of them. I even caught my largest kingfish to date (35 lbs) on the BG15 and it worked great. The gear ratio of the BG15 is also perfect for topwater in my opinion. The BG30 is perfectly matched up for spoon fishing, as well as jigging. I regularly catch Grouper and Snapper on the BG30 and BG90 and the gear ratio and durability in all of them can't be matched for the price in a saltwater spinning reel. February 5, 2008

A: 
I can't say a specific brand name, just because much of it is personal preference, I would recommend, a 7'0" or 7'6" rod, light or medium light power, and fast action.

A: 
Most reels now a days can handle braid. Just make sure the bail has a line roller (this reel does). And it is usually a good idea to use mono backing.

A: 
The one I had had alittle button on the face that stuck out, and the braided line would sometimes start wrapping around that instead of the reel. If I didn't catch it right away, like when your cast lands someplace you want to get out of in a hurry, it would result in a huge mess, and since it was the end of the cast, I would always lose lots of line. Very frustrating.

A: 
The way I see it, no reel can really handle saltwater submersion (except a Van Staal), some better than others but they will all fall to it eventually, I say if you rinse it off with freshwater, and take it apart every so often to clean it, it will work fine.

Pretty much nothing withing these reels can rust, its all stainless and bronze, so the mission is get the salt out!

A: 
Yes. In fact, that has happened to me many times as I like to kayak fish. All you have to do is rinse the reel off and it will be fine. Just make sure rinse thouroughly and oil it properly.

A: 
This is a saltwater reel. Therefore, the saltwater should not corrode the reel. Please make sure you clean your reel after use to ensure a longer life. Thank you!
