Re: Bait Casting reels.?. Any tips? Aqueduct Fisherman?
There are a lot of ways to slow and control the speed of a reel.
The easiest and most common is using a thicker oil in the bearings.
You can add magnetic contol if the spool is metal
With some reels you can even change to lighter spools that don't carry as much inertia.
You might just have a crap reel or a reel made for boat fishing where you just drop a weight straight down.
We need a little more info before we can answer your questions.
