- Voltage adapter. Required for travel. Allows you to safely charge the device under the correct voltage.

How to use?
The use of a spinning reel is for a person who is familiar with the basics of fishing technique, and does not present a big problem.
Can be made of metal, plastic or carbon fiber. There is a mechanism inside the body, and in the upper part there is a foot for attaching the reel to the rod.
How to choose a beginner?
First of all, it is necessary to decide under what conditions, what kind of fish and what baits it is supposed to catch, and also choose an acceptable price range of reels.
After these issues are resolved, you need to pay attention to several main aspects.
- Size: the spool must contain the required amount of line of the required diameter, and the reel itself must be powerful enough to allow casting and wiring of baits of the necessary weights and fishing out trophies that fall on the hook.
- Friction brake adjustment location: Rear adjustment is considered more comfortable and front adjustment more responsive. Also, a lot here depends on the personal preferences of the spinning player.
- Gear ratio: the universal values of the gear ratio are 4 to 5, but if the required good traction or, on the contrary, it is planned to catch in a faster style, these values may differ, respectively, in a smaller and larger direction.
- Number of bearings: if we are talking about a budget reel, 2-3 will be enough. Many beginners believe that the more bearings there are, the better, but this is not so. On the contrary, the presence of a large number of bearings in an inexpensive model can only be achieved by reducing the overall quality of the coil, so it is not worth chasing the number of bearings.
- Weight: As noted above, the less the coil weighs, the better. This is especially true during active fishing, when the spinning player actively moves around the reservoir, makes a lot of casts and postings. But the reel, in any case, must remain reliable and durable, as well as harmoniously combine with the rod.
Details about the choice of coils of various types in our articles from the heading:
Caution! Fish-side traffic. Fishing website
The size of the reel determines two fundamental points that affect the comfort and effectiveness of fishing: line capacity and weight.
The heavier the bait and the more solid the size of the trophies caught on the hook, the more thicker line you need to use. The spool must be large enough to accommodate the required amount of cord or monofilament.
With weight, everything is simple: the smaller it is, the better, because the spinning player has to constantly hold the spinning rod in his hands during fishing, actively working with it, and the less the weight of the tackle, the more convenient fishing will be.
However, it is important to consider two fundamental points:
- Weight reduction should not occur due to the deterioration of indicators such as the strength of the coil and the stability of its operation;
- The reel should be in harmony with the rod: do not stand on a light “stick” puts an excessively large and massive reel, just as it would not be a good idea to install an ultralight reel on a rod designed for heavy jig.
The backstop is a mechanism that blocks the line guide, do not let the line come loose from the spool. In this case, the cord can be pulled from the tension, which is what the spotted trophy does during the jerks to play.
What the coil consists of?
Consider the device of a spinning coil.
Cogwheel pair of gears
Inside the coil body there are two gears, which are called the main pair. The main pair is the basis of the whole mechanism of the reel operation: it is thanks to it that the rotation from the handle of the reel, which the angler turns, is transmitted to the rotor, which rotates the line laying mechanism.
