WHAT SIZE REEL?
The size of reel you choose mainly depends on the venue and the size of fish you're going for. If you do spinning on smaller canals or rivers then you probably wouldn't need lots of line and would benefit from a lighter 1000 reel.
If you're spinning on slightly larger canals and rivers Then a good midpoint is the 2500 size reels. These reels will also allow you to add a larger diameter line which will allow you to catch medium sized species like Pike.
Typically the biggest reel size used for spinning is 3500. These are best used on larger venues like lakes and work great for using heavier lines to catch larger species.
