America's Favorite Fishing Tackle....Since 1949.
nvented by Zebco, the spincast reel is the simplest-to-use
fishing reel you can buy. The push-button makes casting easy
with minimal practice, and because the spool of the reel is
fixed, it is impossible to create a backlash. The spincast
reel is ideal for beginners, but is also used by experienced
anglers as a durable, all-around reel for a wide variety of
freshwater and saltwater species. Spincast reels are available
in a range of sizes, generally determined by the weight of
the pre-spooled line, from ultralight (4 lb. line), medium
(10 lb. line) up to heavy-duty (20+ lb. line).
Spinning reels also employ a fixed spool, exposed and located
at the front of the reel, allowing the line to flow freely
during the cast. Because of this setup spinning reels are
great when using very light lures. Most spinning reels use
a "bail" wire that guides the line back onto the
spool. The bail wire is most often automatically tripped,
but may also be manually engaged.
These are the most advanced type of fishing reel, and they
require the most skill in order to use successfully. Because
the spool rotates as the line is released, these reels are
prone to backlashes without the proper control. Though baitcast
reels can be somewhat difficult to master, they offer the
best control over accuracy and distance; this is why most
professional anglers use baitcast reels. Baitcast, Spincast
