I'm looking for something that will throw light baits like spinners and such, probably in the 1/4-5/8 oz range. I'm wondering if there is much difference in the low-profile reels and say a 4600 Abu.
I got both. The low profile reels `do better on light baits. The Abu 4600 is hindered by the engaged levelwind. I hot rodded my 4601 with ceramic pawl, roller bearing levelwind and cog gears but my stock Lews, Revos, and even pfluger handle the lighter baits better. The 4600/01 size works great on big swim baits and spinners
