Spinning: Large Diameter vs small diameter spool?
Anyone have experience with both and can make a comparison? Diawa spin reels tend to have long, large diameter spools and Shimano tend to have shorter, smaller diameter spools. I have only used Shimano (2000) and like it, but think the larger diameter designs may result in less line memory and potential for tangles. Perhaps even cast farther. I am thinking about the Diawa in particular for a surfcasting and tailwater striper reel. Anyone used either brand for these kinds of fishing?
