This is why: the brake is for preventing the spool from ‘overspinning’ at the start of the cast, whereas the spool tension is there to prevent the spool from spinning at the end of the cast (=the moment your bait hits the water). They both serve a specific purpose, namely to ultimately prevent the dreaded backlashes from happening in the beginning, during, and after your cast.
If you’re still on the fence about purchasing a baitcasting reel, give the Abu Garcia Black Max Low Profile a shot, it’s bargain price and high quality will convince you there’s something here. For those who already know the thrill, the Shimano Chronarch is simply one of the best fishing reels in the market place for its purpose. Once you get the hang of your baitcasting reel, you’ll understand why so many anglers swear by them. Making an informed purchase of one might just be the next great step on your fishing journey.
Like all of the Low Profile reels offered by Abu Garcia, the smoothness doesn’t end with the reel action. It’s ergonomic handles and easy to access star drag system will make it veritably jump into your hands, and once you’re familiar with it you’ll be fishing like a pro. If you’re left handed, you’ll also be pleased to know that you can score one of these configured for your dominant hand as well. For those fresh to the baitcasting world, there’s simply no reason to get started with this quality reel.

The stainless-steel ball bearings in the base model are average, but again in looking at the price point of this reel they’re certainly on par for me. The gear ratio for the models are all different 100P = 5.4:1, 100H = 6.3:1, 100HS = 7.3:1. For a baitcaster I always recommend a minimum of 6:0:1 gear ratio, so I’d certainly recommend the 100H or 100HS in this case.
If you are a bait caster, there are several baitcasting reels on the market that you can choose from. As compared to other fishing reels, baitcasting reels are not easy to use, but they provide anglers with so many benefits. With just less than 100 bucks, you can be sure of getting quality baitcasting reels that will help you catch even the strongest fish.
As for handling, you get to choose between cork and EVA handles depending on which look and feel you like. Both options are durable and offer a soft, non-slip grip ensuring you have the control you need when casting and bringing in fish and offering comfort when fishing for hours. The cork handled reel is slightly more expensive than the EVA handled one.
Magnetic braking systems which are based on, you guessed it, a set of magnets that react to non-magnetic metals ( such as aluminum ) incorporated in the spool. The logic behind this braking system is that when you move the magnets towards the spool it activates the breaks. Meanwhile, moving the magnets further away from the spool allows the spool to move without restraint.
This baitcasting reel showcases excellent design and a good set of features as well as following the Revo line trend of cutting weight to the minimum. The X2-Craftic alloy frame fights corrosion while the C6 Carbon for the side plates shave the ounces off. The weight of the SX-HS model we tested is amazingly low at a mere 6.7 ounces, and it is a surprisingly compact reel. The low profile makes it ergonomic and comfortable in the hand, and casting all day long is not a problem at all.

This Kastking Maximus metal Spartacus Low profile Baitcasting reel is at the 4th position of our best baitcasting reels for the saltwater list. This baitcaster is extremely powerful and comes up with a maximum of 25 Lbs drag power. For giving the maximum, this reel uses carbon fiber drag system. This system can easily handle the saltwater monsters.
Fishing with baitcasters definitely has advantages. More line capacity. Using heavier, thicker lines. Casting distance, as well, should be one of them. Many anglers, however, are not optimizing their reels and their technique to get the most casting distance when bass fishing with casting reels. More distance often equates to more time presenting a lure to fish.

The Ambassadeur Morrum ZX-3600 is a best-in-class round bait casting reel by Abu Garcia and one of their few reels that is still made in Sweden. The price point is high on this reel, but you can feel the quality when you pick it up. Made with bass fisherman in mind, the Morrum takes 135 yards of 12lb mono or 30lb braid on its aluminum spool and sends it far out on incredibly smooth, silent casts under the precise control of Abu’s Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake system.
Baitcasters are for very important for anglers who want the extra control that they cannot get with a spinning reel. Good baitcasters can give you a lot more control and you can cast your lure exactly where it needs to go. If you ever watch the professional fishing tournaments, the only type of reel you mostly see is a baitcaster. In this article, I want to explore and find the best baitcasting reel for beginners and professionals.
The 13 Fishing Concept A wins most versatile due to its usability in both freshwater and saltwater environments. The Concept A is made out of a durable lightweight aluminum. Small and compact it palms in your hand perfectly. The reel weighs 6.7oz and has a matte-black finish. It has 7 ball bearings (3 anti-corrosion, 3 stainless steel, and a Dead Stop Anti-Reverse ball bearing) making it useable for light inshore applications. This reel is smooth as butter and  bombs lures far. The Concept A sits  low on your rod which reduces friction improving casting distance. 
With an aluminum/graphite body, carbon fiber drag, and a great gear ratio, this reel is a surefire bang for your buck. Still, when weighing up the benefits to a reel like this it’s important to establish the ground rules for a ‘bang for your buck’ reel. That all of these qualities are high value to begin with, but for a reel so affordable, you feel like you’re practically stealing.

We love how this baitcaster feels in the water. The SX models have a 9+1 stainless steel ball bearings and one anti-reverse bearing that eliminates most of the back play in the reel handle. The standard models have a 6.4:1 gear ratio while the high speeds get bumped up to 7.1:1. Retrieval is incredibly smooth and as the gear ratios imply, incredibly fast.
Tension Adjustment: The tension system puts physical pressure on the spool and adjusts its ability to spin. A lot of issue anglers have early in the learning process is not correcting the spool tension when changing lure weights. The tension should be used to match the spin of the spool with the size of lure you are fishing. The tension is not meant to be a breaking system, and if used that way is going to greatly wear down the reels internal components much quicker. By having the correct tension, casting distance and accuracy greatly improves.
These are silky smooth reels and will remain that way through hundreds, and hundreds of fishing trips. All models have a 7+1 sealed bearing system. The bearings are corrosion resistant and provide incredible smoothness during retrieval and also play vital roles in supporting the digitally designed gear system. The anti-reverse bearing gives the reel absolutely no back play.

Drag: The drag is the part of a baitcasting reel that regulates tension placed on the line while reeling in fish. A proper drag should be able to move smoothly between heavy and lightweight regulation. This ability allows an angler to adjust his line to the size or aggression of fish he’s dealing with. A lighter fish might need less tension and freedom to roam, a heavier fish will require more tension, to compensate for its size. This is an essential part of a baitcasting reel.
The reel has a smooth design, and the durability is due to the overall structure, comprised of a one-piece graphite frame, a CNC machined double-anodized aluminum spool and graphite side plates. Thanks to the lightweight design and the recessed reel foot, the bait cast reel can handle long fishing days, and you can also handle it for longer periods comfortably.
Lever Drag Baitcasters – Instead of using the star dial, these baitcasters have a lever on the  outside of the reel frame. Lever drags will first push to the strike setting, then all the way down to the max setting. They do usually have a dial for fine adjustment. The bonus of a lever drag is it sets in an instant by simply pushing the lever. As you push the lever, it should gradually gain resistance all the way up to strike and then again up to max.
On the other end of the spectrum, baitcasting reels allow for casting lures like jigs, spinner baits and crankbaits with pinpoint accuracy, but there is a dialed in drag resistance and require a higher skill set to be able to thumb the spool as line flows off. If you can’t find that sweet spot of thumb pressure, you’ll experience a backlash bird’s nest of tangled line.
Additionally, this model is fitted with machined brass gear that boasts 7.0:1 gear ratio. This is a great ratio for anglers who love high-speed casting. Being made from bass makes the reel strong and resilient especially when used in extreme saltwater conditions. Weighing around 7.09 ounces, it is lightweight just in case you will be fishing all day.

The Shimano Curado 200XG K is another high quality baitcasting reel with an oval frame and spool made from aluminum. The spool can take 110 yards of 14lb mono or 80 yards of 65lb PowerPro braid. Retrieve rate on the 200XG is 36 inches per crank and the line comes through a titanium line guide and lays up perfectly. The 200XG features 4 (+2) bearings, and a powerful 8.5:1 gear ratio. The Curado line also features reels with 7.2:1, 6.3:1, or slower 5.5:1 gearing to allow for fine-tuning to lure type and fishing style.


SKEET REESE: Without a doubt, it’s the backlash factor. When you don’t control the spool speed properly with your thumb, or when you release the lure at the wrong time, the line will want to come off the spool while the spool is still spinning, but will end up staying on the reel. [This] creates an overrun of line that turns into a “birds nest” or “backlash.” Think of it as putting a spool of thread on a pencil, then yanking the thread without controlling the spool. It will get tangled.
If you are looking to get a reel which is light, and has a fast retrieve, the Ardent Apex Elite Fishing reel is just the one to go for. This reel is designed for superior performance on the water. Being built with a premium 12+1 ball bearing system, it provides a long casting ability with the mag brake system. It features a carbon fiber handle and also offer a firm grip and greater power when cranking hard.
The simplest thing you can do to increase your distance with baitcasters is by training your thumb to be the brakes. Then you can reduce tension and brakes and have a freer spinning spool. Start with the tension tight. Push the thumb bar. The lure should not drop off the rod tip. Now slowly turn the tension down. When the bait starts to barely fall, start training your thumb. 
There are many different additional brake systems on these reels, like Centrifugal brakes (pins inside creating friction) and Magnetic brakes that slow the spool down with magnets both of which are adjustable. You don’t have to understand the technical details here but I will say it’s impressive to see manufacturers continually pushing the technology in this area of the reel.

We did find that extra care was needed to control backlash on the unexpectedly free-wheeling spool, but once you get the hang of it, throwing a light lure long distances is a snap. This reel is built for bass with a 100-yard line capacity in 16lb mono or 55lb braid and a max drag setting of 13lbs. It is made of light, strong aluminum, with a Zaion side plate and an A7075 aluminum alloy spool. The handle is large and powerful, and it is cut out to save weight.
The reel has a smooth design, and the durability is due to the overall structure, comprised of a one-piece graphite frame, a CNC machined double-anodized aluminum spool and graphite side plates. Thanks to the lightweight design and the recessed reel foot, the bait cast reel can handle long fishing days, and you can also handle it for longer periods comfortably.

Reel overview: Introducing another remarkable Baitcasting reel series from Abu Garcia. From price to perform point of view, the Revo x low profile series is one of the best Abu Garcia reels out there. And don’t worry, it doesn’t have a classic look. More like a laser cut state of the art manufacturing look. Ergonomic, compact, nicely polished color finishing will attract young blokes easily. But what’s happening within the good looking reel? Let’s find out.


Designed for all levels of baitcasters, this reel claims to offer everything that you need in a baitcast and at a very low price without compromising its performance. For starters, it features 5+1 stainless steel bearings that provide the reel with superior smoothness when casting. The bearing’s stainless steel construction gives them increased resistant to corrosion to lengthen their life.

Features in detail: Daiwa Laguna Baitcaster is completely redesigned lightweight composite frame and side-plate incorporated with 90mm swept handle for firm grip, even under strong wind and stress. Also features I-Shaped soft touch handle knob for comfort if you decide to go all day long. It sports a medium profile gear ratio rated at 6.3:1 optimal for squarebill crankbaits or shallow spinnerbaits or baits that triggers a reaction strike.


With frame being the foundation of the reel, it is important to find a reel with a high-quality frame. After all, a low quality frame means the reel will break with few uses thereby forcing you to buy another reel. Most reels boast aluminum frame because aluminum is lightweight while still being sturdy. Graphite frames are also common but the material is not very durable and stable like aluminum. So to be on the safe side, always go for baitcasting reels with aluminum frame. 
Spinners are known for their easy operability, and are perfect to introduce someone new to fishing. Just flip the bail, put a finger on the line and cast, close the bail, then simply turn the handle to reel it back in. Just please make sure they don’t hold the reel upside down, you won’t make any new friends that way. Remember: clockwise motion with the handle.
Reel overview: Since 1958 Daiwa started their journey. They introduced the first ‘open-faced reel’ and made a mark in the angling community. The Daiwa Laguna Baitcasting reel brings the quality and commitment to epic performance. Perfectly crafted low profile Baitcasting reel is ready to conquer the saltwater adventure. Unlike KastKing, the Laguna series ensure performance for the price. Let’s see how each feature operates.
The mechanism of working of the gear ratio is simple and this just how easy it works. If the reel has a gear ratio of 5:0, it implies that the spool turns five times when you rotate the handle once. This means that the higher the first number of the ratio, the quicker the lure is pulled back to you. Different ratios are best suited for different types of lures. A gear ratio of 5:1 is generally regarded to be the average with 4:1 and 6:1 considered to be slow and very fast respectively. A slower gear ratio as low as 3:1 is recommended to be best suited for diving crankbaits and large spinnerbaits. An average speed gear ratio of 5:1 is recommended for Texas rigs, soft plastics and jigs while for other lures and some spinnerbaits, a pretty fast gear ratio of 6:1nto 7:1 should be considered.
What is the best baitcasting reel? After conducting over 20 hours of research from fellow anglers and getting the chance to fish with some of these reels. I've come up with 5 reels that cover the whole spectrum of needs. I looked at the following categories, to compile this list. Value adding features, braking systems, drag systems, casting distance, smoothness during casting and retrieve, and most importantly price. With reels, you usually get what you pay for. For price, the sweet spot seems to be the midrange reels. This range gives you better bearings and materials than the entry level reels, some features from the premium reels but without the premium price. Editor's choice goes to the Curado K. The best bang for buck goes to Lew's tournament MB. The Daiwa Tatula SV TW gets the award for most reliable.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing your baitcaster is gear ratio. Gear ratio simply means, the number of revolutions of the spool per turn of the reel handle. This determines how much line comes in per turn of the handle. For instance, in a 7.3:1 gear ratio, the last number (1) will always represent a 360-degree turn of the reel handle. The first two numbers (7.3) represent the number of revolutions of the spool per handle revolution. So for our example, for every 360-degree rotation of the handle, the spool will rotate 7.3 times. Sometimes other angler's might ignore the second number in the gear ratio and just call each reel a 5 speed for a 5.3:1, 6 speed for a 6.6:1 and so on.
Here are top 6 low profile reels and top 3 round baitcasting reels. I’ve chosen these reels based on the key features in parallel with price. As always, I’m looking for the balance of quality and affordability, “the best bang for your buck” as they say. These are quality reels and would be a great asset to your baitcasting arsenal. Here are my picks for the best baitcasting reels for 2019.
Take your rod and reel outside and make a short lob-type cast. Swing your whole arm, don't try to snap the rod tip with your wrist. The reason for casting like this to start is that you want the spool to start spinning slowly and evenly. A lob cast will do this. A snap cast will make the spool spin fast from the beginning, almost guaranteeing a backlash.
Hold your rod approximately at the 1 o'clock position; release the spool to allow the weight to drop. Adjust the brake mechanism so that the coil stops rotating when the weight hits the ground. This setting reduces the likelihood of a game when you first cast. Once you can handle your baitcast reel with this setting, you can pull back on the brakes to increase the throwing distance.

One thing that stands out about this reel is the handle size, which seems large in comparison to the reel body. However, it is very comfortable to use. On the downside, the anodizing on the crank nut showed scarring after one removal of the handle. Stainless steel would be better there. But for the price, the overall fit and finish on the reel is good, and this smooth-rolling, long-casting reel fills our number 9 slot.
Un de mes plus gros moulinets baitcasting, ce qui signifie lancer de très gros leurres. La plage de lancer est d'environ 25 à 200g. Un frein très puissant de 10kg max. Le Prorex XR 300 est le grand frère du Lexa 300. Ces 2 références sont les moulinets les plus robustes au catalogue à ce jour. La forme low profile est idéale pour une prise en main agréable et sans fatigue. J'utilise ce moulinet pour la pêche du brochet avec de gros leurres, mais aussi en voyage sur les peacock bass et arapaima avec une tresse de 150m en 0.35mm.
