Types of reels

Shimano Beastmaster XS-A 7000 Reel

Although reels in this category are usually used on the main fishing rods, they can be used for spod and marker work, particularly the latter, as the free spool feature makes is easier for the line to be pulled off when determining the depth of water.

The big pit revolution started with this style of reel which is suitable not only for fishing, but for spodding and marker use. Big pit reels are normally not very expensive but extremely hardwearing and durable; well able to withstand the rigours of continuous spodding.
