I'm Looking For............

Recommended Posts

Im looking for a Spinning reel thats large with a oversized "long cast" spool with multiple ball bearings and a multi disk drag washer system with selective anti reverse with a 6.3:1 Gear ratio and I would like to be able to put braided superline , rqanging in sizes up to 30 pound test for fishing floating worms or finessing soft plastics in heavy cover.

I believe what you are describing is called " a baitcaster" :)

If I may ask, why would you want this on a spinning rod when you could get the same setup and more durability with a baitcaster? is it a preference thing or are you unfamiliar with BC setups?

Especially when pitching and flipping in cover you will get more accuracy, a stronger, more durable setup and have more options with heavy line.

Otherwise, I would check out some smaller saltwater spinning setups

I've got a US Reels Supercaster 240 that does all the things you want. I'm not sure about the gear ratio. These reels handle braid great. They only cost around $50 at Rogers in Liberty, so should I tear one up I'm not that worried about it. I fish it on a 6'6" or a 7' MH spinning rod and I'm confident throwing into the gnarliest cover.

My lite saltwater spinning outfit is almost identical to my most used freshwater set up. I use inshore rods for both, 7' med, 8/17 with 1/4-3/4 lure weight, bass sized reel(2000), both outfits have been used in both fresh and saltwater many times. You pick the brands, most will do the job.

Inches per turn (IPT) is what counts, not the ratio, with that said, I get so many strikes on the pause that I don't burn that lure in anyway. I think I get my distance from the rod more than the reel, it's where you put lure rather than how far you can toss it that matters.

#30 braid on a spinning rod is where you'll loose most of your distance ,I can whip a 40" bull redfish into submission in a matter of minutes with a Saros 3000 filled with #10 power pro..A St.Croix TIS76MF and a Saros 3000 filled with #10 braid and I can throw a 3/8oz MirroDine XL out of sight..Long rods with a parabolic action and thin briad = distance for med sized set ups.
