If you’re in the market for a new fishing reel, you are probably trying to decide whether you want to go with a spinning reel or a conventional reel. There are many people who simply prefer one over the other. However, if you are interested in figuring out which one would be better for you and you don’t necessarily have a dog in the race, then you should consider a few key factors.
Spinning reels have come a long way in recent years and have become very popular as a result. They are now known for having more drag power and line capacity than they typically have in the past. In addition, have also gotten a lot easier to use and, in many cases, it’s just as easy to use a spinning reel as it is a conventional one. Therefore, you’ll get all of the benefits of a spinning reel without any of the frustration that sometimes comes along with it.
There are still plenty of positives when it comes to conventional reels, though. Conventional reels are known to be much lighter than spinning reels. When you match them up with the right lore, you will also be able to cast them much further than you would be able to cast a spinning reel. Additionally, there aren’t many moving parts that come along with a conventional reel, which isn’t usually the case with a spinning reel. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about your reel giving out on you when you’ve got a fish on the line.
