Discussion of Sea Fishing Reels, multiplier and fixed spool reels.
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hi all, a while ago i bought a daiwa exceler 4000E, and intended to use it for beach work. i found out it was a spinning reel after buying it, but still used it for ordinary bottom fishing, and it works just as well as a normal FS, so i wondered if it is actually bad to use spinning reels for other purposes? because it works a dream as a normal FS, as well as a spinning reel
'Spinning reels' are just usually smaller. If you want to put a bait long distance with a fixed spool though you'll find a 'big pit' type..something like a 8000 size makes life easier. The more line you can cram onto one the further it will cast because the lip of the spool causes friction and reduces your distance considerably. Hope this helps
