Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product!!! i use this for salt/fresh water and this great for beginner. For starter i didn't understand how a bait-cast reel work and ultimately did want to spent to much on something i didn't known how to use. April 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good real for money i have owned this reel for three years and used it alot for bass fishing, cast good and retreives good. great reel for money. March 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bass pro megacast rell This is absolutely the worst reel I've owned. I returned it multiple times because the drag is so low I can pull it out with my finger. And time after time again it was the same. DO NOT BUY YOU ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY!!!!!! March 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great buy Does what I need it to do. fish golden shiners for big bass and need clicker. also use for catfish. clicker works well and reel brings fish to boat. do not cast it much so not sure about smoothness of cast. Drag on previous reels was weak and slipped when I did not want it too. this one seems fine. March 17, 2014

Hi, Most will using spinning reels for Carp Fishing but casting reels are also commonly used when fishing for carp and are a good choice for handling the heavy weight of these fish. 10 pound test or heavier line.

Thanks!

I recieved this reel a couple days a go, I'm liking it so far.

Its the first time I use a reel with a bait clicker, I have some questions about how this works.

Do I turn the bait clicker on, and push in the cast button so it can take it and run, then reel and set the hook?

Can I reel the fish all the way in with the bait clicker on or is this bad for the gear?

Thank you

Been using this reel for years. Does not throw as well with clicker on. Crank in big fish with clicker on all the time. No problems. prefer not too because noise annoys me. I use it to fish big shiners for big bass. does the job .

A: 
Bait clicker is for alerting you when a fish is running away with your bait. You throw out your bait say for a catfish set your rod down and grab a beverage. When the bait clicker starts clicking engage the drag and set the hook when the line is tight. I always turn it off as it is distracting when reeling in a fish

I don't know about muskie but I catch 45+ inch spot tailed bass without a problem. I think that I finally wore my drag out over the years but for the money who cares. I frequently use a 3 to 4 ounce weight to get the bait down during tidal movement.

Bait clickers are used to indicate when a fish is playing with the bait. Its more for fishing for cat fish and downrigging. I wouldnt used this reel for anything other than stripers,muskie, cat fish, etc.

A: 
You absolutely can. The reel is open enough to make this rather easy, but be advised that one should be wary of extended use of this technique as it may leave you with a nasty friction burn on your thumb depending on line type. My first day out I used exactly this technique to land a 34 pound catfish. Was easy as pie

A: 
This I would not say is a good starter if your just starting out with fishing altogether but it is a start if you are not new to fishing altogether if you have some experience with and opened faced reel and a closed faced reel as this type of reel incorporates both of those types of reels. :)
I hope this is helpful to you

A: 
I would say no unless the fish are minnows size. I just have used three of them fishing for catfish. The biggest fish of the day was a 5lbs. fish and the reel would slip. I had to use my thumb to control the spool. I could not get the drag set tight enough to stop line being pulled of the reel. I would do what I plan on doing and spend the extra money for a better grade reel.

A: 
the only brake is the spool adjustment knob but this reel is virtually impossible to back lash! i use it for cat fish/stripers...it throws heavy baits far and smooth! the eye even moves when casting for less line overlay! i would definitely recommend it for the money. hope this helped!

It has a centrifugal brake. I do not cast with this reel since I am using lead core line to troll deep, so I can't tell you much about how well the braking works.

it's good for small fish under 5lbs.any bigger and the clutch drag seams to slip.I use it for summer flounder and it works ok.Not as good as my old penn 940's but for the price you can't go wrong.Just don't try lifting any tree stumps with it.
