At a Glance: Casting Reels
Casting reels are also referred to as "revolving-spool" reels. They are considered a multiplying reel because, with one turn of the handle, there are multiple rotations of the spool. This allows more line to be released in an easier, quicker motion. Casting reels can be adapted to handle different weights and sizes of lures, baits and lines. These adjustments are all made by the angler on the reel itself.
The most popular brands of casting reels at FishUSA include 13 Fishing, Abu Garcia, Daiwa, Okuma and Shimano.
