How to choose a fishing reel

There are two main types of fishing reels out in the market:

Spinning Reels Baitcaster Reels
Spinning Reel Baitcaster Reel

Spinning Spinning reels are the more commonly used reels. They are basically easier and cheaper than the baitcasters. There are many variations of the spinning reel, including rear drag, and Shimano’s famous baitrunner to name a few. There is the added advantage of having removable spools so that you can use different line for a different purpose on the same reel.

Baitcaster Baitcasters are basically used for accuracy and strength. The sizes range from the small for lure fishing to the larger ones for big game fishing. Casting is considerably harder, and they are mainly used on boats, hence, I have no baitcasters myself.
