The bait casting reel mounts to the top of a bait casting rod. This has more uses than the spinning combo while this spinning combo requires more coordination to use. The line comes off these reels from the top so it doesnt twist however the anglers thumb is used to help control the speed the line unwinds off the reel when casting. Basically if you forget to put your thumb down over the line on the reel or dont use enough pressure the reel spins faster than the line can go through the guides so it creates a big mess of snarled tangled line called a backlash or a "woof" or various other descriptive names.
Bait casting reels or conventional reels from the 1600s came into wide use by anglers during the 1870s. Early reels were operated by inverting the reel and back winding to retrieve line. The reel handle was positioned on the right side as had become customary; models with left-hand retrieval are become more popular. A big game reel is a kind of bait cast reel for heavy saltwater fishing. Not designed for casting but used for trolling on the open ocean.
