I have never used a baitcaster but have always been interested in trying. I don't want to spend a lot of money on something I am not sure I will like ( or be able to use with my coordination ). Since I really don't know anything about them what are some things I should look for in one? I see Canadian Tire with clearance ones now and then for $60 and up for a reel/rod combo.
Are these nothing but crap that I should stay away from or would they be something that's of to pick up and see if I like and can use a baitcaster?
Another question I have is how much better is a baitcaster vs my Zebco Omega reel? I can cast and pitch very well with my Omega and it has a great drag system, and for a spincast reel it was quite expensive ( over $100 ) so I am not sure just how much better a baitcaster would be.
I fish Walleye, pike and bass as well as pan fish ( perch/crappie ) .
So right now I have a spincast and a spinning reel/reels and I like them and they work for me so not sure if moving to a baitcaster would be worth it.
Sorry for all the questions, just trying to make the best informed decision I can and want to get as much knowledge as I can.
