Jason, Ive always used spinning reels until I started bass fishing(used a few bait casters for steelhead an salmon)

With a bait caster I get more accurate placement of my bait when pitching.
I can use heavier line as well.
They are small and compact and have a nicer feel when burning a bait in or fighting a fish.

But the whole key is you have to get good ones or you wont be happy with them.

I would say a curado at the min for the shimano line. You get a curado and you will be very happy with a baitcaster once you get used to it.

Spinning reels do have there place though.

Yes I love them... The out pitch my curados by a long way. the only drawback is the setup is a pain in the but so you have to thumb the reel, otherwise you get back lash..

As far as casting a 1/4oz rattle trap they fly again beating the curado.

I like the handle and how smooth it is.
