I have 3 OKUMA inception 6000 in classified ,lovely reels for less than £50My missus bought me a Korum Opportunist 8ft 2lb rod so im looking for a reel to couple with it.
Dont really want to spend more than £50 if I can help it.
Must be front drag.
Been looking at the Shimano 4000 ST FB and the Korum Zelos 4000 - Anyone used either of these?
Any other recommendations? Will be used as a bit of an allround rod for carp, barbel and pike, as it will be in the van as an opportunist rod
Hi Tony - no I don't own one but was having a play in AD a while ago and whilst Rich is correct they're def lighter than an SS2600; size wise I don't think there's much in it between the GS4000 and SS2600 and its def a 'smoother' more modern reelChris, do you have a GS4000?
Found one second hand for £40, are they similar in size to the ss2600 do you know?
Depends on what they are going on Adam. It sounds like they are going on a little stalking outfit which he will probably be roaming with on a short rod. If that’s the case the lighter GS would definitely be more suitable imo.Yes, the 6000 INCEPTION is a little heavier , but not something you would notice on the rod rest.
The INCEPTION in my opinion is also very strong ,for the price they are Brilliant .I have some for sale in classified
But I also use 3 on my rods ,the fast drag is just as good as a BAITRUNNER .
Unfortunately he had sold it the day beforeHi Tony - no I don't own one but was having a play in AD a while ago and whilst Rich is correct they're def lighter than an SS2600; size wise I don't think there's much in it between the GS4000 and SS2600 and its def a 'smoother' more modern reel
