shimano 350

Here's an alternative... an older Shimano
Check eBay and you will find in the completed auctions a few Shimano 350's
This is the baitrunner before the 3500.

You will see them selling for under $40. One just got no bids last week at $45. It was more or less in near new condition too.

I bought one last year on eBay for $32 and I like it... solid and works well.
It is smaller than a 3500 and balances well on a 7' or 8' rod. Small enough to use as a plugging spinner but its a baitrunner for bait.

I have an okuma avenger baitrunning that cost me like 50 bucks at Cabela's.

Honestly, I would keep saving your money and buy the shimano, or as others said you can get a used shimano.

I just saw a used great condition Shimano 3500 sell for $65 on a board (trusted member) and it was spooled with Power Pro as well for that price. That is about $10 under what I see them sell for without Power Pro. It didnt last long but those deals do pop up, especially if you have all winter to look for one.

I agree with this tactic.Be patient and grab the right deal.I've bought several rods and reels that were practically new from these boards and I have saved a bundle of money.
