Banax 1000 vs Electramate 920xp on 12/0
 
Assuming both could be had for the same ballpark price with rods and line (electramate ~$100 cheaper), which would be your go to for longevity, reliability and fish hauling power?

Mainly targeting queens, yelloweye and the random grouper in 300-1500’

I understand the Electramate doesn’t have ​​​all of the bells and whistles of the Banax (line counter, levelwind, etc) and I can do without those, but how about the power and durability?

i don’t think you’re going to have a problem with reliability with either of them, but having fished both I can assure you that once you fish a reel with all those bells and whistles you won’t even consider one without again.

I wouldn't want to be manually leveling 1500 feet of line.

Banax for sure. Never a second thought............

Banax!

If you plan on trying for swords they have a new reel coming out soon....

Banax has the new reel out. Pulls 40 lbs of drag all day.:)

Rapchizzle 05-22-2019 06:24 AM

I ended up getting the banax and am a big fan. Charter guests prefer the banax combo to the LP we have when running them side by side.

Banax for sure

any detail on this? When will it be available?

VanW 05-23-2019 02:59 PM

Like this next week or something, I have one. Looks nice.

Question - for the Banax do you have to "thumb" the spool when dropping? Or does it control the rate of the drop so the spool doesn't backlash?

​​​​​​
adjustable tension and I think the motor does something too.. anyway I don't think you have to watch it very carefully

As of a few weeks ago. Since James hasn't posted (i don't think) the specs, shoot me a pm if you want some info.

1500 vs 1000

What's the difference in line capacity if you know. I use my brother's 1000's enough to know I would like the 1500 for what I want to do with it.
For the other poster that wanted to know about freespooling line. Once the reel starts to drop line the motor will start in a line out capacity that prevents backlash. It is a neat feature and no you will not need to keep your thumb on the spool for the whole ride to the bottom. Once it hits it stops like a mag brake on a baitcaster


VanW 05-25-2019 10:44 AM

There are some specs in a post somewhere, I think it's 1100 yards of 80

Thanks for the help Van
