Spincast reels are not as popular as they once were but they still provide great value for some fishing
applications and anglers. They are essentially spinning reels that are fitted with a plastic cover. The line emerges from a small hole at the front of the reel.
Like spinning reels
, spincast reels feature a spool that is parallel to the rod axis. Also, they do not rotate during the cast. Instead, the line simply unspools as the weight of the lure pulls it free.
