In this episode of Easy Beginner Baitcaster Fishing Tips I am adjusting the brakes of a baitcaster and showing how they effect casting. The centrifugal braking system in this reel has 6 different settings. I try to cast the reel on all six settings to see how the cast is effected. The highest brake setting reduces backlash but it also reduces distance. The lowest setting was an instant bird’s nest and was totally uncastable for me. Hopefully beginners can see how the brakes effect casting and baitcaster backlashes, and maybe avoid a few backlashes with this information.
It turned out set up was really easy. Check it out in the video below.
