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.
Fly fishing reels are simple mechanical construction operated by stripping line off the reel with one hand and casting the rod with the other hand. Nowadays fly reels have more sophisticated disc type drag systems. Saltwater fly reels are also specially designed for use in the marine environment. These are however larger in diameter to provide a large line and more backing. Bait casting are multiplying reels, with the spool mounted above the rod. Stainless steel, aluminum, graphite and synthetic composite are often used as raw materials of these reels. The graphite made reels are lighter but the aluminum reels are most preferred as they are more stable and rigid. Good quality bait casting always come with high quality bearings made from shielded, double shielded or sealed bearings.
The other reels I use is a hardy viscount and a marquis, I know they are a bit old and expensive, but their again Im a great Hardy anything fan, and there is no denying the quality. Whatever you decide to get, then a bit of advice if you are on a tight budget. Go online and research what you are looking for, then go to your local store and price up the reel of your choice, even ask for a bit of advice. Its a sad fact fly fishing reels bought from a retail shop are more expensive than buying online, the shops overheads force the retailer to charge more. You have the choice now, of buying from the shop or going online, usually the store owner is an experienced angle, and you will have benefited from that knowledge.
Spinning reels, on the other hand, can handle freshwater lunker bass fishing, big-game saltwater jigging, as well as freshwater and saltwater tournament style fishing. Spinning reels should hang below the spinning rod, with the handle of the reel on the left side of the reel for right-handed fishermen. Spinning fishing reels have an open spool, with the fishing line thread through a bail, which is designed to hold the line. To cast, the angler must open the bail, grab the fishing line with a finger, cast, and then either manually close the bail or turn the handle a half revolution to automatically close the bail. Please, when casting a spinning reel, DO NOT FORGET to open the bail. I have seen many expensive lures go flying into the deep sea with the familiar pop or snap of the fishing line because the angler forgot this critical step in casting these reels.
