Hi Guys, just bought the new JW Avon system and was hoping someone could point me at a decent reel that will compliment it. I will be using the rod for tench and carp around 2-6 lb from pools in the close season. I also intend to use it for river fishing when they open up again.

Looking to spend up to 50.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Tenchman.There are so many reels on the market now,it would be hard to pick just one.
Here is a few suggestions from the many that will follow
Mitchell acx2004
Warbird 320
Shimano 3500m
blah,blah,blah
[:D]these are all exceptional feeder reels and not one of them would cost any where near 50.00.

Just bought myself the Shakespeare Powerplay reel.

This received top marks in last months IYCF, and I have to say it's a good-un.

8 Ball Bearing, 3 spare spools, two handles (one quick release) and it looks the business as well.

It cost me 35 from Bennetts of Sheffield.

Thanks for the help guys - seriously looked at the Powerplay, looks like a top reel but I wanted the option of going a little heavier so I plumped for the new Okuma Epix ER 30 for 39.99. It was a toss up between the Okuma and the Shimano Sahara 3000M.
