  • Machined-aluminum spool
  • Radial Cast Control

Browning’s most affordable baitcaster, the Medallion GT is a monster of a reel, bringing nearly 18 lbs. of drag power to the fish party—that should give you an idea as to the quality built into every model! No shortcuts taken here; all Medallion GT Reels are crafted on a lightweight, rugged one-piece aluminum frame and feature a drilled, machined-aluminum spool for solid castability. Exclusive Radial Cast Control uses centrifugal force to add pinpoint control to your casting; the six-bearing system features double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings and Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse, enabling precision retrieves and forceful hooksets. Equipped with Browning’s own Magnum Drag system, an alternating stack of six carbon-Teflon® and stainless steel discs, for smooth resistance all the way through the drag curve. Perforated Recurve-style aluminum handle with soft rubber knob.

Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good reel really smooth, though won't get much distance on lighter lures. Has removable face to set brake, so can be a pain if changing lure sizes all day March 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by First bait caster This was my first ever baitcast type reel an I must say this is a great first experience baitcasting reel. When talkin to a fellow angler about getting into using a baitcaster he suggested I spend a minumum of $70 so having had a browning reel once before I figured this reel would be a good starter. So far I have had it three weeks an have been throwing it none stop. Wadding to takin the boat out to bank fiahing. Get a little dirty easy but keeping it clean is no big issue. The thumb release could be a little smoother an sometimes slips up the gears but that is rare. Other than that good starter reel. August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great smooth reel. Just came back from a fishing trip in western New York. The lake has been over run by a type of weed that has given the bass there some thick cover to hide in. used this reel to flip into the pockets to catch them. loaded with 30 pound spider wire I was able to get these big bass out of the masses of weeds without much trouble. June 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I took a chance I'm 59 years old and never had much luck with a bait cast reel. But wanted to learn how to use them so I bought the browning combo what a great buy Easy set up few backlashes I feel like I was using one all my life June 18, 2013

It does not move when cast, just like every other low profile reel except the new Ardent. No big deal anyway.

I am wanting to start getting into a little more catfishing. I do some bass fishing and I like the feel of a low profile baitcast reel. I was wandering if this reel would hold up ok if I would hook into a pretty good sized catfish. What about the wide spool version? Would it hold up to some braided line and a good sized cat? Thanks for your input.

A: 
Unfortunately, to catch big bass here in south florida, you also have deal with the snakehead. I hooked into a 7+lb snakehead a week ago and the drag system worked great. I also use braided line (PowerPro 12lb dia./50lb test) because of the heavy cover. It casts even some of my lighter plastics and topwater frogs with ease. I'm almost positive that it would be great for catfishing. Of course, I caught a 49lb flathead on my trusty Abu Garcia 5500 about 10 years ago and it held up fine.

A: 
I had the same question two weeks ago. I think the reel is not intended to be used for extreme catfishing. I would recommend Abu Garcia 5 or 6000 series for catfishing. I haven't tried the BPS CatMaxx yet.

This reel seems like a great reel to buy and I was wondering what are the pros and cons of a Wide Spool vs. a Regular Width Spool. Thanks!

A: 
The difference is, one is a bit bigger and heavier, also holds more line!

Unless you will be going after fish that will make long hard runs, and you need the extra line capacity, then go with the wide spool.

If not,then the regular one will do just fine! They are just as strong and good as one an other!

the gear ratio mostly, the 7.1 retrieves more line in per handle turn than a 6.1 for example.

I know this question would probably be a better question for Browning but maybe you guys could pass it along. I'm sure any fish that needs such a large drag rating might take all 120 yds and leave you cursing. So why not?

A: 
I think 17 lbs of drag is way more than enough for any low profile baitcaster when you consider that you would normally set your drag at 1/3 of the pound test of your line. Are you using 50 lb test line on this reel??!! One of my favorite reels, the Shimano Scorpion 1000, has only 3 lbs of drag and it works fine!

A: 
The drag gearing is most likely the same. If the center of the wide spool is also slightly larger in diameter (which it would need to be to resist flexing) then the drag strength would be slightly lower. Simple gear ratio mechanics.

The wide spool is better(some think)for braided or heavy lines,not just to fight bigger fish.

This reel DOES NOT HAVE A DUAL BREAKING SYSTEM!!!! I has a centrifugal breaking system!

You press on the button with the Browning logo on it, and twist up, and the side plate pops off, then you turn the breaks on or off!

No magnets involved!

Yes, but the magnetic brake is under a side plate and must be removed to adjust. It is a bit of a pain, but the reel works great.
