Horrible Baitcaster to Learn With! 5/29/2014

I thought I'd get away from spincasters and get into baitcasters and I knew it would be a big change. The rod is decent and presented no problems but the reel itself was of low quality. Since the spool itself is soft plastic and can be scratched with a strong fingernail, it isn't the most precise spinning spool. Everytime I got a backlash and try to repair it, the fitting was so loose that the line got caught up within the housing between the spool making the problem worse. Then as the spool spins around, it wears at the line until friction cuts the line. As a result, I lost two good lures and all it did was entangle itself even worse. I eventually had to cut all the line it came with and will have to repeat this process. Why did I decide to get into a good baitcaster when spincasters worked? I don't know why either.
