    How good are the spincast and spinning reels at reeling the cats.

    I use all spinning gear, and do fine with most of the fish I hook into. Granted I've lost a few large fish in my life. Mostly because I was young, cocky, and loved tangling with big fish on light tackle. I figured if I got the memory and he got away we both went away happy.

    Nowdays I'm using a bit heavier line, but still have no problems getting 5+ plus cats & 10+ plus carp to the bank.

    Now spincast I'd be concerned with durability over the long haul, plus I think its going to limit your line choices some.

    But hey, if your mostly catching eating sized cats, give it a try. You can always upgrade down the road to a better reel, with a beefier rod.

    FOR THE PRICE,THEY SUCK. YOU CAN BUY AN OFFSHORE ANGLER COMBO FROM BASS PRO FOR $24.99. NOT THE BEST ROD,BUT A GOOD REEL. THEN THER IS THE SHAKESPEARE TIDEWATERS AND ARSENALS. GREAT REELS. LESS THAN $40,cant beat it. IT'S ALL OPINION. MINE, I WOULDN'T BUY ONE.
