    The Abu Garcia Cardinal 400i Spinning Reel is nice and lightweight with a wonderful graphite frame. It helps you grab the fish and retrieve them with amazing precision at a reasonable price.

    I can’t say enough about this Abu Garcia reel. I bought one for a great price and haven’t looked back. While there are better reels out there, having one that gets the job done (and a few fish) is a blessing.

    When I first purchased the Cardinal 101, it was my preliminary foray into the Abu Garcia market. I’ve found that it is a solid reel for bass, walleye and especially pan fish. Today, I won’t go without my spinning reel and have solidly used them for at least five years. If you are on a tight budget, you may want to look into the 400 series, or at least the 300 series.
