Our friends over at fishinghugger.com have put together a great "foolproof" guide for choosing the right spincast reel. They cover the basics of what to consider when choosing a reel, profile 5 different reels with pros and cons, and finally state their pick for the best spincast reel, all things considered.
This is helpful information, especially if you're teaching your kids how to fish for the first time. Links to Amazon for all products are also included so you can check out how they are reviewed there and purchase them.
