Default CHEAP REEL FOR BEGINNERS....

I know sometimes money is tight and you cant afford all the best when starting out.. theres a push button reel called the ugly cast cost around $12 at walmart and it is a real good reel for the price my son used one for a couple years it never gave him no issues.. be good for someone on a budget..

Spincast reels have really come a long way. I'm sort of wondering when a pro is going to get sponsored by a spincast company and that's all he'll use. I think it would be interesting to see how he/she'd do.

Every kid should catch a 12-pound carp on a Zebco 202. They'll be hooked on fishing for life.

My daughter has a scooby doo kids rod that is the short rod length two feet or so and a good weighted lure can make an awesome cast. It's the best way to start out fishing. One step at a time.

A co-worker of mine showed us some pics yesterday of a bass his son caught. The family went to a city park on the weekend and wanted to try some fishing. The bass was about 5 maybe 6 lbs and it was caught on the zebco spiderman pole.

some companies have pretty sweet spincast reels... abu garcia abumatic and diawa goldcast III are the two that come to mind.

i would think the one major thing holding back a pro from using them exclusively is the slower gear ratios and/or lack of drag maybe?

Up until maybe three years ago I had a couple Diawa GoldCasts. One finally wore out and the other ended up in the hands of my neighbor's son. They were good reels. I believe they also had a drag system that was dialed in. But, like you said, CFL, the gear ratio was like 5:1 or something like that.

I've always thought these would be cool and easy for a beginner to use. Instead of floundering with keeping a rod and reel upright, let the weight be under the rod, but still have the benefits of a spincast reel.
And of course doesn't mean it is only intended for a beginner.

They're called an "UnderSpin". I can't attest for their price tag...Haven't checked into that.
