    Which do you prefer....casting rod with a baitcaster on a rod with a trigger or without?

    I'm having a hard time chosing and don't know the benefits.:confused2:
     
  2. Joer,

    I prefer a Catfish Safari rod with a Abu-6500 w/o trigger.

    sTRICTLY Catfish

    I really don't have a preference, If I have a trigger I use it,, If not I don't,,on Baitcasters for Catfishing..

    On Lure casting rods for Bass, etc. I kinda like a trigger

    On Spinning setups, the reel foot acts like a handle or trigger and I use those that way.

    I agree go with a catfsihSafari rod they come with no trigger, you'll never miss the darned thing. best catfishing rod on the market hands down.

    If I'm doing a lot of repeated casting, like with artificials and such, or using techniques that require me to hold the rod for a long time, I like the trigger, both for casting control and working the rod during retrieves. For chucking bait out and putting the rod in a holder, it doesn't matter to me.

    I don't like the triggers. They usually can be snipped of fairly easily...
