What are the 3 types of reels?
When reviewing fishing reels, there are three main types to consider: the Spincast Reel, Spinning Reel and the Baitcasting Reel.
What is the most popular type of fishing reel?
Spinning Reel. The spinning reel is arguably the most popular type of fishing reel in existence. It’s a tad more complicated to use than the spincast, but a lot more efficient and durable. Beginners have no trouble using it, and there’s a whole army of experienced anglers that won’t fish without it.
What’s the difference between a baitcaster and spinning reel?
The line on a baitcaster reel comes off the spool directly in line with the rod while the line of a spinning reel is let off away from the rod. When you’re baitcasting, the spool moves with the casting of the line, so it requires a more experienced angler to keep things under control.
