Spinning Fishing Reel

The spinning reel is arguably the most popular type of fishing reel. The unique thing about spinning spools is that they connect to the rod from below. This not only provides a natural holding position but also allows you to achieve a good balance when casting. Speaking of, casting with a spinning reel is very easy!

How fishing reels do works?


Starting from the top of the spinning reel, the towing system can increase or eliminate the tension of the fishing line. The knob on the top of the spool allows you to adjust the frictionless plate to increase or decrease the tension.


The spool is located below the resistance adjustment knob. This component contains your fishing line and is specific to your particular fishing reel.

The fishing reel bail:

The bail has two basic purposes.

Delivery trigger:

To drop the bait, the bail device must be activated so that the fishing line can be pulled off correctly. To get it back, the bail must be closed. To close, rotate the handle as if you were on the fishing line. The automatic shutdown system should be activated.
Keep the fishing line inline:
When the fishing line falls off and is rolled onto the spool, keep it in line. Without bail, your fishing line may move without instructions. This can cause knots and limit performance. The bail arm keeps everything for smooth throwing and removal.


Although the bait fishing reel is dedicated to left and right hands, you can change the rotating fishing reel to suit your needs.

Anti-reverse Switch:

This function is usually located at the bottom of the reel and is very useful when fishing. The inversion on the rotating reel is a function that prevents the reel from rotating backward and avoids resistance. Some reels have anti-reverse switches that allow the angler to choose whether to engage. This feature has helped people “unwind” instead of letting resistance fight fish.

What is the use of spinning reels?

Rotating and rotating casting reels are most suitable for use in many situations:
When you target smaller or standard size fish. When your bait and fishing tackle are usually lighter.
When you put the pole in the stand and are looking for something you can set and forget, you don’t risk many technical issues.
When you provide equipment for a class or charter group and need to easily switch between left and right directions.
For starters, spinning tackle can bring lighter bait. From weightless bait to bait, up to 1/4 ounce, spinning rods, and fishing reels are hard to beat.
It makes your bait sink more straight, without excessive “pendulum effect” due to the rotating spool on the bait box.
The biggest advantage of using a rotating spool is that you can easily adjust the resistance when fighting with fish. Regardless of whether the resistance is located at the front of the wheel or the back of the wheel, the resistance of the rotating wheel is usually easy to obtain and can be scaled freely, so that it can be adjusted in all aspects during combat.

Pros of spinning reels:

Buy cheap
Easier to use
No recoil (because the spool moves too fast, the line suddenly becomes bunched)
Suitable for lightweight lines and attractants
Using side-arm throwing is easier to throw near the shoreline or under overhanging trees
Easily switch left and right directions
Easy to add extra bobbin capacity
