The casting reels is a type of fishing reel with a moving spool and it is a direct descendant and the result of the development of the first and relatively simple constructions with a moving spool. Unlike a traditional fishing reel
with a fixed spool, the casting reel is equipped with a main axis supported by two points. There is a spool on this axle. The entire drive mechanism is synchronized with the guide - the guide responsible for evenly distributing the line on the spool.
The main advantages of these reels are their durability and resistance to significant loads. Another important advantage of the casting multiplier reel is the movable spool, which rotates during the cast, feeding the line, thanks to which there are no resistances associated with the friction of the line against the edge of the spool.
Low profile or round profile reel?
The answer depends on destiny. The Low-profile reel
is a smaller oval shape of the baitcasting multiplier when viewed from the side. Very often it is equipped with a magnetic brake that helps to control the line extension during the cast. It is usually smaller than its round counterparts, which makes it more practical.
A frequent choice for light pike rigs, such as jerkbait rods.
Light casting reels are perfect for jigging in search of perch.
Thanks to the use of extremely light spools and high-quality bearings, the producers have reduced the rolling resistance. What does it give us? First of all, it allows us to handle very light lures - small trout wobblers or perch soft lures.
The round reel is nothing more than the bigger brother of the low profile reel. It is characterized by a much stronger construction, which is also paid for by the greater weight of the spool. This generates more rolling resistance during the throw, but it compensates us with power. This type of casting reels are mainly used for heavy types of casting. These are jerkbait reels, i.e. the largest jerkbaits, powerful super deep runner wobblers, huge poppers or even heavy rubber lures - these are the lures most often used when fishing for the largest predatory fish - catfish, salmon or pike.
