    Default Which shimano reels???!

    Hi all,
    So, currently in the market for some new shimano reels, but have now idea where to begin, as my current reels are now probably 15 yrs old!
    I,m a litttle overwhelmed by all the xtd, csi, xsb, sm, etc!!! So I've no idea where to start!

    Can anyone recommend a good shimano reel for 120 bracket range please?

    Must of admit, I have been �� at the ultegras 1400 xtds and the 5500 xtd.
    So is there a 5500 xtd as well as a 5500xtd baby big pit reel then?
    Can't seem to find it on the shimano web site.

    im not up to date with the latest model of the ultegras
    I use the 5500xtb that were replaced with the 5500xtd I believe, both excellent reels.....the 5500xtd may have been upgraded
    I prefer the smaller 5500 to the 14000, just a personal thing
    Im not sure if they are officially named baby big pits, I think it might just be a nickname they were given.....I could be wrong

    Well I,m glad I went on here, I thought the 14000 was the smaller one because it was cheaper! ��
    Just need to find a tackle shop that has one for me to have a closer look at, and unfortunately I can't find one anywhere! ��
