Just remember, this is a Trolling Reel. I do cast with it, but it's not meant for long casting distances.
The most use I get from this reel, is simply dropping off the back of the boat while trolling, and using the clutch to feed line out. I've used planers and birds on this reel, and had a lot of success. I will pick up 2 more of these reels for my next trip to OBX.
I use planers and birds with this reel, and it performs flawlessly.
Once a fish is hooked while trolling, there's no need to slow the boat. This reel is like a winch. You just crank and it easily pulls in your fish.
If you look it is almost identical to the Offshore Angler GCL-30 with the exception of the fact that this reel only has two bearings.
Your choice of rod will also affect the casting. But to answer your question, no they are NOT just for trolling.
