Shimano Spinning Reels
I've always been a Shimano spinning reel fan and also like to back reel when bringing in fish. Last week while at Cabela's I was browsing the Shimano line and it appeared they have eliminated the back reel feature on all or most new spinning reels. I asked the guy at the reel counter and he didn't know what back reeling was?! Any idea why Shimano would go this route with all their spinning reels? Because I don't use any more than 6lb test line most of the time I like the added security of being able to back reel in case the drag sticks on larger fish.
