Now, let’s talk about some of the differences
in spinning reels. Now, spinning reels are probably the most versatile fishing tackle
that really exists. You can use anywhere from a little mini cast to a little mini spinning
like this, maybe two to four pound test line, use it for crappie fishing or, you know, your
smaller stuff, makes a small fishing to a brawny fighter. Lot of fun. Generally use
about a four and half, five foot rod. Makes a nice balance. Then you go into a normal
flex rod which is this right here, this is a seven foot, with a 4,000 size stratic reel,
ten, twelve pound test line. Good for intermediate type fishing and shore fishing. And then,
if you need heavier spinning gear, they have it where it’s suited to go up to 30, 40 pound
test line. This is a big pen spinning outfit that we actually catch 100 pound tarpon with.
But, with the combination, you need a rod too that can stand that kind of pressure as
well. Big range, they all work the same way. They cast the same way. They all have a bale
the same way. Most all of them have a front drag. It’s just that some are bigger, some
are smaller and they’re used for different types of fishing.
