Reeling in the Money
It is hard to find a baitcasting reel worth the money. Why? Well, baitcasting reels can handle heavier fishing line and lures, and they give the angler more control their casts. Baitcasters are designed to fit in the palm of your hand, which means you have more control over the motion of your lures than would with a spinning reel. Not to mention, most modern baitcasting reels have features that allow you to dial in your optimal performance settings.
Bass Pro Shops Tourney Special is a highly customizable reel that’s packed with technology to give you greater control over your casts. The reel’s Smart Cast dual centrifugal brake system automatically applies the right amount of brake force to each one of your casts. That means you’ll have more control and less backlash. The reel’s external cast control dial allows you to dial in your perfect cast to your specifications. And if you really want to tinker with the reel, you can open the side panel and adjust or remove the reel’s braking pins. Additional features include a 5 bearing system with instant anti reverse and a titanium nitride coated line guide.
If you’re just getting into baitcasting reels, the Pinnacle® Platinum Plus™ 6 BB Bait cast Reel is a good one to start with. This is an affordable entry-level reel that will help you make longer casts at higher speeds using less effort. Mastering baitcasting reels can be tricky, but the Pinnacle Platinum Plus makes both casting and retrieving smooth fairly easy. Standout features of this reel include an unlimited anti-reverse system, an audible click drag star, a fully-adjustable magnetic cast control system with 8 magnets and a high-speed 6.2:1 gear ratio.
