A quality spinning reel can make the difference between a frustrating day on the water and returning home with a cooler full of prized catches. When you're buying a new spinning reel, make sure to check whether it can hold the amount and size of line that you'll be using. A light reel will also save your wrists after a long day, whether you're fishing inshore or offshore. Choose the drag that is right for you: the average angler can manage 20 pounds of drag pressure for a few minutes, so a reel with more than that may not be necessary. Instead, focus on the internal components like the number of bearings and the material of the gears.
At Sportsman's Warehouse, we offer a wide selection of quality spinning reels that will keep you fishing over the long-term. If you'll be using your spinning reel in saltwater, be sure to choose a saltwater spinning reel. Freshwater spinning reels can become damaged and corroded by the brine over time. Our reels come equipped with corrosion-resistant finishes, line-twist reduction systems, and the torque and smoothness you need. Reels from Shimano, Abu Garcia, Daiwa, Okuma, and Penn can give you durable, powerful reels that deliver smooth casts and help you bring in fish after fish.
