Baitcasting Combo Basics

The baitcasting combo features a baitcasting reel on top of a casting rod, with the line guides facing up. The main advantage of baitcasters is the ability to use heavier line and bigger lures, making them popular for big-game fishing. Baitcasting reels give you more control over the speed and distance of your casts. When you buy a combo, the manufacturer has taken the hassle out of matching the rod and reel—they are pre-matched for ideal performance.

Quick Considerations

  • Low-Profile vs. Round: Most of the baitcaster combos in our selection come with low-profile reels—this is the more popular design and is ergonomically friendly. Round reels hold more line and are great for casting larger lures and heavier line.
  • Gear Ratio: This indicates how many times the spool revolves with one crank of the handle. For example, a gear ratio of 6:1 means the spool fully revolves six times with one full crank of the handle. The higher the gear ratio, the faster the reel will retrieve line. A lower gear ratio, such as 4:1, will provide more cranking power. A fast ratio, like 7.1:1, will work well with buzzbaits and spinner baits and when targeting powerful game fish.
