Cabelas DM metal series reels

Recommended Posts

Have had the plasti ones for a few years real smooth drags only thin in dot like about them is they have plastic spools that tend to crack. Not sure if the spools on the metal ones are metal as well. Good bang for your buck IMO

I used them all last year on my riggers. My one complaint is that they tend to continue to spool out a few times after you flip the clutch. I previously used the regular cabelas and okuma convectors for riggers. They are definitely better than the regular cabelas reels. Im trying okuma coldwaters this year for riggers.

I'd of bought Daiwa sealine for the same price.  I have a couple of the old style plastic ones and they're junk IMO.  They got switched to brown trout duty.

I have them, I really like them. I bought the 30's which are a bit bigger than I really wanted, should of gotten the 20's. They will replace if they break too, so I really like that!!

The last 5 years been using cabela's reels. For downrigging ok. My two wire dipsey got smoked. The drags stick and don't work well.  Bought 2 saltist for my wire dipsey this year. I guess you get what you pay for. I only fish up here about 5 times a year. I thought the cabela's would be ok , but I was wrong. Starting to up grade all my reels. :)
