The right reel improves your chances of landing a catching worth bragging about. Think about your skill level and environment when selecting an Abu Garcia® reel. Learn more about the difference between spinning and baitcasting reels:
- Abu Garcia® Spinning Reels: are mounted on the underside of your rod. These reels are ideal for novice anglers. The reel is located parallel to the rod and does not rotate as you cast, reducing the chance of line tangles.
- Abu Garcia® Baitcasting Reels work with the weight of your lure or bait as it pulls the line, turning the pool to release more line. Experienced anglers prefer these reels when fishing for larger fish with more fighting power. Baitcasting reels are typically designed as one piece, minimizing the corrosive effects of saltwater.
Abu Garcia® casting rods are equipped to handle heavy line and big lures-great for trolling or nabbing a trophy catch. And Abu Garcia® spinning rods are optimized to perform in tricky situations, handling light line and bait and specific finesse techniques.

Many Abu Garcia® reels are outfitted with innovative Carbon Matrix™ drag systems for smooth and consistent drag pressure across the reel’s entire drag range. An improved design helps produce more efficient cranking power. A compact bent handle fits comfortably in your hand, cast after cast.
Keep in mind these three factors when choosing your Abu Garcia® reel:
Line capacity: The amount of line you need depends on your fishing environment. Freshwater fishing at the local lake or stream requires minimal line. Saltwater anglers need a reel optimized for depth.
Ball Bearings: The more ball bearings in your reel, the smoother it will work under pressure. Ball bearings help support your reel’s moving parts.
Gear Ratio: Lower ratios provide more fighting power for bringing in fish from deeper depths. Higher rations are better suited for pulling in fish closer to the surface.
