How to choose a coil for spinning?
Spinning is a high-speed tackle that is caught by “serious” fish, such as trout or salmon. Spinning fishing is an activity for persistent and energetic people. If you decide to try yourself in this business, then being in the store in front of a huge choice of accessories, you will probably think about which reel to choose for spinning. Let's see what coils exist, find out their disadvantages and advantages, and also learn how to choose the most suitable coil.
The advantages of this type of coils are simplicity of design and low cost. When pulling up large fish, reeling fishing line requires quite a bit of effort. As a rule, the capacity of the drums allows you to wind a fishing line on them of almost any length and any diameter. Most often, conventional inertial coils with a drum diameter of more than 10 cm are used to equip spinning.
When choosing a spinning reel, you need to rememberthat the inertial reels have a significant drawback - a fairly weighty drum, the inertia of which does not allow the most effective throwing of baits weighing less than 15 g. In addition, the design of most of the cheap inertial reels can also create problems when pulling out fish on a thin fishing line.
Spinning Multiplier Reels
Multiplier inertia coils are more modern. They are lightweight and small. Models of this type of coils are equipped with various regulators of the speed of rotation of the drum. In this case, the drum itself is placed in ball bearings. Multiplier coils have adjustable brakes that ensure a smooth line running. Modern multiplier reels are effectively used for fishing with spinning, if you need to use a fishing line having a diameter of more than 0.35 mm and a bait heavier than 15 g.
Spinless Spinning Reels
Spinless reels are the most widespread among fishing enthusiasts.Their main advantage is the possibility of throwing the lightest bait, having a weight of only 1-2 g, and at the same time the requirements for space in the place of casting are minimal. All coils of this type are equipped with an adjustable friction brake, so you can use a very thin fishing line. The disadvantages of inertia-free coils should include the limitations of the diameter of the fishing line. Most often it should not exceed 0.5 mm. As for the optimal length of the fishing line, it should be at least 0.4 mm.
The best reels for spinning
A beginner spinningist should take note that when using a bait that has a weight above 15 g, as well as when fishing with a track, you can successfully use domestic inertia reels. And, those who are more “fond of” thin tackle, it is recommended to give preference to the instantaneous coils of the LEMZ, Orion, Dolphin series and others.
Choosing a coil
So, after you have chosen a specific version of the spinning reel: inertial or inertia, you need to pay attention to the following points before buying it.
Of course, first of all, you should decide on your financial capabilities, since the range of prices for spinning reels is very large. On the shelves of stores you can see the coil with a price of 300 rubles to several thousand. They differ not only in technical characteristics, but also in quality. It is clear that buying a cheap coil, you should not count on the fact that it will serve you for a long time and will work smoothly. Usually such coils serve no more than one season and can start to create problems already at the first fishing. As a rule, such coils are made of plastic, which very quickly breaks. Moreover, not only the mechanism inside the coil, but also the legs of attachment to the spinning rod can fail. Therefore, it is best to give preference to expensive coils, and the cheapest options to use when fishing with a float rod.
Conditions and purpose of fishing
It is clear that a particular coil is intended for a specific purpose. Of course, there are also universal reels, which are used in most cases, but they are still not intended for catching large species of fish or, on the contrary, very fine gear.Thus, in one case, you should choose a power coil. In the other - very light, designed for throwing ultralight lures. Accordingly, the choice of a reel for spinning directly depends on the intended object of fishing and certain fishing conditions.
Any reel must necessarily comply with the rod, namely its technical characteristics. Tackle must be fully balanced. When choosing a coil, its dimensions, leg height, weight, as well as the length, design and weight of the rod must be taken into account. And, of course, once in the store, do not hesitate to consult the seller how to pick up the coil to the spinning. It should be remembered that each coil may have its own characteristics and the sales assistant will tell you about them.
Often, the staff of these stores are themselves avid fishermen, so your question can lead to an exciting discussion on how to choose a spinning reel. Choosing a coil for spinning also make sure that it is made of high quality material, it happens that a fake can sell you at an inflated price.If you are a seasoned fisherman, then take the coil, similar to the previous one, so that you do not have to get used to the new tool. Looking for stores that respect the rights of the buyer, so that in case of dissatisfaction with the purchase, you can easily exchange it.
