Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I do it on spinning reels obviously, but all my bc reels have 66 or 75 yards line on on them, and they are usually 2/3 filled of full capacity.
Haven’t noticed any distance been sacrificed that way.
There is a reason. If you're a bank fisherman and fish in the rivers, you'd be glad to have a ton of line. You never know if you get a musky, snag a sturgeon etc.
