    Actually my biggest problem is understanding why everyone's having such major issues with BC outfits. I think everyone should have learned to drive cars b4 they had all this assistance crap and everyone should have learned on a BC from the 60's which basically had NOTHING for adjustments. I ended up wit a daiwa tatula xsr and a 6'8" St croix tournemant caster. They pretty much cast themselves

    I could never figure out why anyone was using them...no gain worth the additional cost and effort.

    More accurate
    So line being torqued over a 90 degree bail (of note for larger fish)
    A lot more ergonomic in hand for those of us with arthritis
    Way more...Well I won't go on, cause that's plenty for me

    Ultimately, there is no correct answer to the question of whether to use a baitcast vs spincast vs spinning reel. It depends partly on preference and partly on the type of fishing to be done. Beginner fishermen often prefer spincasting reels due to their ease of use, but with a good teacher and a little practice a baitcasting reel can be mastered in a short time for larger catches and precision casting. That said, a good all-around choice for many fishermen - and the most popular reel of them all - remains the spinning reel.
    Personal choice like everything else...pro & cons...I would guesstimate for 75% of weekend warriors it would make no difference what they use, even thought they would believe one is better than the other, like with most things guys do.

    Never see guys using BC's for bass fishing...

    Hope you enjoy....

    Actually that's where I see em 90% of the time because of their ability to boat in and hammer a bay faster than spinners

    Exact opposite here...of the two boats I fish on, with 6 different Bass fisherman, no one uses them. Only one boat of the two even carries one as a spare.

    I don't remember even seeing many at the boat launch when talking with other boats.

    It's just another reason to blame the gear when you have a bad day on the water.

    They're like a Tilley Hat; a true Outdoor Gentlemen's hat, ...superior to the standard ball cap..only 5x more $...shades both your eyes and your neck at the same time..

    hardly ever see fishermen wear one, except the Fly guys.

    My reason for digging-up this old post : I "thought" I might be in the market for a "newly-developed" BAITCASTER . I had heard that the newer types were a cinch to cast with ; obviously I heard wrong . Judging by the posts (ahead of mine) nothing really has changed . During the 60s I used to "play" with a Pflueger (baitcaster) BUT never "warmed up" to it . --- My fault ; no doubt . --- Ever since then I've utilized SPINNING-REELS (Daiwa and Shimano) with excellent results . --- Lately , however, I wanted to branch out a bit and started looking at a number of baitcasting-reels because I'd figured that they would be more suitable for HEAVY-DUTY-applications . --- After reading the above posts it dawned on me that I'd be getting into a can of worms that probably would repulse me again .
    Be more than you pretend to be !

    Get a Daiwa bait caster with the TWS system and when set properly which is extremely easy to do you can cast let it hit the water without putting your thumb down and it won't back lash. They are amazing!
