Reel Size

Reel sizes vary by manufacturer. To best understand the size of a spinning reel or casting reel, refer to the line capacity rating for the reel. Size standards are consistent across our reels.

Gear Ratio

Conventional Reels - Gear ratio describes how many spool rotations completed with one full rotation of the handle.

Spinning Reels - Gear ratio describes how many rotor rotations completed with one full rotation of the handle.

Braking System

Centrifugal Braking is a physical, friction-based braking system. The faster the spool spins, the more braking pressure is applied. 

Magnetic Braking is an externally adjustable braking system. This system applies a constant force throughout the cast, determined by the magnets’ proximity to the spool.
