At a Glance: Centerpin & Float Reels
Centerpin and float reels can be compared to the fly reel in basic design, but are larger in size. There is no mechanical drag on these reels, allowing the spool to spin freely, creating a natural drift great for floating. These reels are also ideal for casting far distances with ease since there is no drag in the line.
Brands of centerpin and float reels available at FishUSA include Amundson, Islander Reels, Okuma and Raven.
