What is a 2500 reel good for?
The 2500 or 25 size reel is my choice for dock shooting for crappie or finesse tactics for bass such as drop-shotting. I spool the reel with 6-pound line and match it with a 7-foot light action rod for dock shooting. For drop-shotting, I use 8-pound fluorocarbon line and a 6 1/2-foot medium action rod.
Which fishing line casts the farthest?
Braid proved to be the better choice compared to traditional monofilament line in terms of casting distance for both experiments.

Does heavier line cast farther?
The short of itâ€”a heavier, thicker line will not cast as well as a thinner, lighter line will. So 10-pound line will throw a lure much farther than 20-pound line will. There is less drag on the line in both the guides and in the air.
What size reel is best for trout?
The best spinning reel for trout should is usually a size 10 to 20 but your spinning reel should match the size of the trout and the size of the rivers that you fish. Since trout in small rivers or even in larger rivers don’t get as big as steelhead and salmon do they do not require the same sized spinning reels.
