Casting reels have a similar code; higher the number - larger the reel. In casting reels, the difference with the next size up in a model line is nearly always wider: a 6500c Abu Garcia is just a wider version (more line capacity) of the 5500c; otherwise, they look the same. Narrow casting reels afford less rod wobble when reeling, especially when fighting a fish. Low profile casting reels are particularly easy to work with when compared to round reels such as the 6500 types.
Decide what size fish you'll pursue when choosing a size category of reel. When you decide on a reel size, pick a price you're comfortable with, then refer to the Bass Pro Shop catalog for star ratings by price range and read the reviews.
Is that the sort of answer you're looking for?
Also, every time your line goes out against drag, it twists. This has an accumulative affect. The above trick fixes this, as well.
Another thought is the line you're using. I tried 20# seaGuar Abrazzex on a spinning reel. The line has such a springy memory that it doesn't want to lay on the spool - drove me nuts! Bass Pro has a KVD reel spray that's supposed to fix that problem. I just ordered a can.
