If your fishing preferences are fishing for small to medium sized fish like bass and red fish, you will want to get the best spincast reel to make your experience a lot more enjoyable. We review the top 5 spincast reels of 2018 below, but first a little more information about these particular reels.
The spincast reel is a completely enclosed reel with an opening at the top where the fishing line comes out. The line wraps around a spindle situated inside the enclosed housing. The spindle sits parallel to your fishing rod so the line comes off in a coil in a fluid motion. The line is wound back around the spindle using a collar that catches the line where it comes off of the spindle and rotates as the crank is turned.
When the trigger is pushed, the collar moves out of the way and allows line to unspool from the spindle. This type of reel also has a drag that is either controlled by a wheel located on the housing or by a large spoke ring around the base of the crank handle. The drag provides tension on the line for fighting fish and is adjustable to prevent the line breaking or snapping.
To cast a rod equipped with a spincast reel you start the casting motion and press the trigger on the forward motion of the cast at the point where you want the lure to start flying. When the lure hits the desired location you turn the crank to release the trigger and engage the collar with the line. You can now start retrieving your lure.
Spincast reels usually have better line throwing distances with good holding capacity and pretty easy to handle over others. Bearings, gear ratio and weight play an important role when trying to choose the right spincast reel for you. We will discuss that further and more in depth later on.
