If you are looking for a real with a strong backbone and the strength to handle the strongest of fish, turn to the baitcasting reel. The toughness of the baitcaster is unrivaled by any other real. The baitcasting reel is equipped with a drag system that aids in wearing down the fish with a constant drag pressure when trying to reel it in. When using a baitcaster it is you want to take the appropriate measures to avoid backlash. To avoid backlash make sure to check to see if there is too much slack in the line during the cast, drag settings not properly set, or for any user error not applying the slight thumb pressure needed to make a quality cast.
