Closed Face Reel. A closed face reel is a type of spinning reel. There are a couple of major differences between a closed face and an open face spinning reel besides the cover giving a closed face its name. One is the cast is usually done via a push-button release for the line. Second but very much related is the relative ease of a closed face and especially so for children. With the open face reel a bail is flipped and the line must be held by a finger until release. With a closed face the holding of the line is not necessary. The only skill that must be learned is the timing with the push button. Kids can pick this up very quickly. So the choice of a reel is one that should be made keeping in mind the type of fishing you will do the skill required to use the reel and cost of course. Knowing these basic designs should help you choose more wisely.
If you will be fishing in freshwater you will want to choose a spinning reel with an aluminum body. But if you will be fishing in saltwater choose a graphite reel. When looking at the body of the reel make sure there are no loose or flimsy parts and that all moving parts are smooth and not jerky. Spinning reels have more parts than casting reels so try to choose a reel with fewer parts which will decrease the chance of mechanical breakdown.
