Baitcaster- cant remember the name.
Posted by jimbeam on 2/6 at 10:49 pm
Some guide I was with was using a baitcaster that spooled out from under, not on top. Supposed to never backlash. Anyone know what model I'm talking about?

Never heard of that, seems like it would make variable thumbing pretty tough.

No I have never heard of it either. I would like to see this, so I will be watching this thread. I am sure the reel has other cons to be able to not backlash tho. Like wont free spool as smooth or something.

US Reel makes a baitcaster series that spools from the bottom, and doesn't have a line feed like the traditional open faced baitcasters. It uses something they call 'level wind'. I bought one on close out from cabellas a couple weeks ago, and headed out to Galveston bay in a couple weeks, so I can let ya know how it works compared to my ol' ABU 5000.

SuperCaster 1000

Academy is selling them...but I'd rather stick with my Calcutta or my Revo.

Great reels but the outer finish of the reels doesn't hold up in saltwater worth a shite. It doesn't affect the performance of the reel though. For the money, they are a great buy.

I've heard from other guys I fish with and against that USReel makes a very reliable freshwater reel for the money. Haven't used one myself.

Would buy one today, but I have at least one H2O still in a box.

If you palm the reel to finger the line, it negates the "level wind, causes it to spool up on one side. Now if you are only using it for cranks, spinners, etc it seems like a good reel.

Very true and didnt think of that. I do rest my line across my finger when flippin a jig and such.

I tend to finger the line as well, trying to get a bead on a specs' double tap - hadn't thought about it that way. We shall see. For $35 (from $199) it seems worth throwing out a few times.

Cabellas in allen, tx had a few supercaster 800's in their bargain room as close outs. Had a few extra ugly stiks sitting around unused and thought I'd give it a try. I've thrown it a few times in the yard and it seems legit.

Yep, that's the one. Was coming back in to link this from US Reel

USReel

Got mine from the back room close outs at $34.xx. Didn't see any on the regular displays at all.

True - most of the stuff back there is crap - but I just wanted to get another relatively inexpensive rig to bring down and leave in Galveston. I bring my Abu's back and forth to break down and clean. And since my next trip in 2 weeks ill be going down with a couple buds that aren't well-geared for salt, another setup was what I wanted.
