A Reel For My Rod

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to fishing and I'm trying to understand all the complexities that come with fishing.

I'd like to ask all of you veteran anglers if you could help me find a reel for my rod.

I recently got this rod: http://www.amazon.com/Shakespeare-Medium-Action-Travel-Spinning/dp/B000ODM2RM/ref=sr_1_23?ie=UTF8&qid=1339568415&sr=8-23

and I am trying to find a reel, but most reels that I come across have an arc where the reel's foot is. I tried sticking a medium reel on it before and it wouldn't fit.

This specific rod has a flat reel seat, so I think I need a reel that has a flat foot. I hope I am making sense because I am still getting used to the terms.

If anyone has advice as to which reel models to look at or what terms I should use to search with, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

It would be much easier to answer your question if you could post a pic of the reel seat so we can see what you're talking about. As far as I know, there's only one type of spinning reel foot...
