Open face spinning fishing reel is a bit difficult to use than the Spin Cast, but it comes in a wider variety of sizes. Users can choose them according to preferences. These are available in ultra-light models to be attached with smaller tackle. This light version can be used to catch panfish. And it is equally useful to catch bigger gamefish such as "Bull Reds" in the surf. It works perfectly when someone needs a longer casting. Anglers prefer the open face spinning reels more, as the line capacity of them is much higher than that of spin cast. They have got a much smoother drag too. This capability is required for finesse of fishing and for long running fish.
Because of these advantages, virtually all serious veteran fisherman use single action fly reels. If you are serious about fishing and want a fly reel that will save you from serious headaches and last a long time, then consider purchasing a single action fly reel. Contrary to fly fishing reels, bait casting reels are extremely complicated. These reels are not designed for beginners or children and will cause you serious headaches. Bait casting reels are used by experienced veteran fisherman who catch big fish such as salmon, bass and pike. Even though these reels are great for catching large fish, it does take significant time to perfect the casting technique. But bait casting reels do have the advantage of farther casting, better leverage and more precise lure placement. Basically, bait casting reels are made for catching bigger fish because they are made for heavier lures and heavier lines.
A closed face reel is a type of spinning reel. There are a couple of major differences between a closed face and an open face spinning reel besides the cover giving a closed face its name. One, is the cast is usually done via a push-button release for the line. Second, but very much related, is the relative ease of a closed face and especially so for children. With the open face reel, a bail is flipped and the line must be held by a finger until release. With a closed face, the holding of the line is not necessary. The only skill that must be learned is the timing with the push button. Kids can pick this up very quickly.
Reel bodies can be made of plastic, aluminum, steel, or graphic. Aluminum is tougher than graphite, but graphite is much lighter. It is a personal call whether the lower weight of graphite is worth it trade off in toughness, but it primarily depends on the type of fishing you do. Larger fish will require aluminum, while catching smaller fish allows you to get away with graphite and have less weight to deal with. Graphite is also great at resisting saltwater corrosion. When looking at a reel to buy you should be sure it feels solid and has no loose and rattling parts. There movement should be smooth and there should be no back play.
