or would i be better to pay an extra $130 for a shimano calcutta
moneys kinda tight so i dont want to spend big bucks if i dont have too :/
I hate to go against the grain and give you MORE options but I think you would have better luck with an Abu Garcia C4 or C3. The BCX models are the lowest end Abu Garcia round reels you can purchase. They won’t hold up in a saltwater environ like a C4 or C3.
Here’s a link to a C4- (make sure to read the reviews at the link)- http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_74091____SearchResults
Here’s a link to a C3- (read reviews)- http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_74090____SearchResults
The BCX’s are designed for larger freshwater fishing, (Catfish, Musky, Sturgeon, Float fishing for trophy Bass using 8-12″ Shiners, Etc).
If you want Calcutta durability without the Calcutta price-tag look at the C4’s & C3’s.
Hope this helps? If you get a chance read every review you can on any reel you intend to purchase. Good luck!
