I always started with all brakes ON to get used to the reel and how it handles different weight lures. Then as I improved my ability to use it, I would move a few to the OFF position. Just keep going til there's no more adjustments needed/available.Thanks!!!
Is there a rule of thumb to use for asjusting the brake and tension for getting started? Obviously I will google it to find sites that talk about learning to cast a baitcaster, but if anyone has some favorites that would be great!
