Round and Low Profile
Baitcasting reels (also known as baitcaster reels, casting or overhead reels) are reels with a revolving spool that sit on top of a casting rod. These baitcast reels are used for casting bait or lures with precision. The main characteristic of a baitcasting reel used for bait casting, is that they are mounted above the fishing rod, where the fishing line is stored on a bearing-supported revolving spool. Baitcasting reels are also known as overhead reels or a baitcast reel. They are typically made out of two materials: graphite or aluminum. Graphite baitcasting reels are lighter in weight and more
reasonably priced as compared to an aluminum baitcaster reel. But aluminum reels are more preferred because they are more stable and rigid, allowing the fisherman to cast a reel that is properly aligned.
Good baitcasting reels are easy to handle and move smoothly. Baitcasting gears consist of brass and steel pinion gears. Another material used for the gears is a lightweight yet sturdy material called Duralumin. Another hallmark of a high quality baitcasting reel is that it has high-quality bearings made from shielded, double-shielded or sealed bearings. Aluminum spools, a smooth drag, forged handles, and titanium lines are other key components in a baitcasting reel to look out for.
Two Types of Baitcasting Reels
You will also find that there are two main types of baitcasting reels in the market. Round baitcaster reels feature larger spools and can hold more line. Low-profile reels on the other hand are more ergonomic and easy to handle. So the type of baitcaster reel you will use will ultimately be determined by the type of fish you want to reel in. For example, if you are into bass fishing, you will not need much line in your reel, so a low-profile reel will work well for you. If you are out to hook Steelheads, Muskie, Pike or Salmon, you will need more line in your reel, so a round reel will be necessary.
