LRF Spinning Reels

For LRF and Japanese Light Game fishing styles most anglers opt for a spinning reel sized between 500 and 2000 (including 2500 and C3000). A small spinning reel filled with thin braid, fluorocarbon or ester line offers the light lure angler the easiest option to cast lightweight lures down to 0.5g. Look for a reel in your price range that isn’t too heavy and one with a smooth drag to protect light line from the power of large fish. The spinning reels listed here I have either owned, fished, or handled at various tackle shows.
