Roux Maillet Fishing Reels April 04, 2018 21:18:43
Weight will be an important consideration in any reel you choose. The obvious reasons are comfort and fatigue. Just think of fishing reels as a bowling ball. There is a perfect size and weight for all of us. If you are trying to buy a reel online it may be a good idea to go to a retail fishing store to get an idea of how heavy a reel you should purchase. Spinning reels are generally weighted in ounces.
A spin cast reel is a spinning reel with a shell that covers the spool. This type of reel is primarily meant for children and beginners. The first commercial spin cast reels were made by the Denison Johnson Reel Company and Zebco in 1949. Mounted above the rod and fitted with a cone shaped nose that encloses the fixed spool. Spin cast reels operate by pressing the button on the rear of the reel and then the button is released during the forward cast to allow the line to fly off the spool. Pressing the button again will stop the lure at the desired position. Cranking the handle re-engages the line back into the reel.
