oh here we have another rocket scientist. would some one just please post just one piece of credible evedence where a spinning reel out cast a covetional with all this world of knollage that can not be that hard to do dont give cheap excueses give me facts untill then I would have to say based on the posts here there is only one conclusion that can be made coventionals cast big bait father period does not matter if it is 20ft 200ft 600ft who careswell I can tell you I throw 8nbait about 125 or so and some guy fly right by me with no problam of ocourse I dont have a tape but in any event much much farther than I have ever seen a spinning reel go in my 30yrs of fishing the point
I dont swim out with a tape purely a estamate I admit maybe not acurate but the song remains the same spinners are second class always have been aways will be run your mouth all you want that will never change
you are the one running off at the mouth with your half baked opinions.
funny how all those 200 yd 8n baiters never show up at events where accurate measurments are taken!

the song remains the same I dont have to prove that it is proven day after day at the casting capital of the world the obx so bring it down there and prove it where it matters most in action .not in some little playground .
feel free to post all this proff of the spinning reels beating the convetionals

simple you are not you offer not reel proof that spinning gear is even equal never mind better that conventionals , do you ever even fish the point the coventional camp ground of the world I have seen guys throw out 8nbait 200 yrds with no problam some times I sit there in compleat disbelief and bringing in big fish to boot.
so I have to ask my self one question do I listen to a guy from phily or should I believe the thousands of guys I have seen in the obx its not a hard decision for me
the #s here support the covetionals also. so till I see differant not he said she said
I have no choice but to go with what I see . seeing is believing
For me the casting setup showed a clear advantage.
well I see that you have to have the last word no matter what the out comeOk your new name is "end of discussion" . . .
I would have conceded that a 6500 Mag Elite would beat a Stradic with .35mm mono before the test.
In fact I'm surprised there wasn't more of a difference.
I haven't read the whole thread only the first page but Sgt S are you taking this personal?Well, first off if we are discussing fishing applications that is the wrong question / focus because, when was the last time someone landed a decent fish from 500+ feet with a tournament sized and tuned conventional spooled with tournament line?
I have taken a position and I am ardently defending it. I enjoy persuasive writing and debate . . . If you think this topic is charged you oughta read me when I write on gun rights.I haven't read the whole thread only the first page but Sgt S are you taking this personal?
I'm only relating my experiences with the two tackle types and explaining what is possible with new generation spinning tackle. As I've said before, the old paradigms have changed and "facts" that were unquestioned are now suspect. The "fact" that I enjoy attacking the most is that for fishing, "if ya need to get it out there, conventional is the only way to go . . ."Sounds like you are developing a battle plan for how to concur the conventional reels.
Thank you for restating a primary point from my first post in this thread.Hand a conventional to an untrained conventional caster and you will have a mess hand that same person a spinner and they will catch a fish.
Plainly stated my position is that modern spinning tackle opens a door for fishermen of all talent and experience levels to a level of performance and more importantly, day in day out fishing consistency that conventional tackle just does not offer.
Well, that would be an easy assumption to make . . . But just for fun let's have a little thought experiment . . .The only thing this thread has brought to light is that spinners have very little of a learning curve but the conventional is not the same.
