Old thread resurrection!

A few simple reasons why reels may have / or may not have an selective anti -reverse .
one is that when the drag applied by the reel spool is relatively light 6-8kg, they can fit a simple mechanical gubbins of a selective anti- reverse that can cope with the minimal forces applied . Certainly uk reels fall into that category
When you move in to the world of reels that require to handle heavy drag , most of the top end reels have permanent anti reverse as you may have at some stage have over 20kg or more of drag applied, and some manufacturers' feel more confident in a more robust system than a single lever that would be an on/off anti -reverse

These reels will normally cost more simply due the anti reverse been a lot more complicated to build/install so they can't afford to put in lower cost reels .


if anyone is interested of course!

Funnily enough last year I bought 2 Stradic Hagane FK 2500 spinning reels and noticed there was no anti reverse, very odd to get used to, and though I've not used them yet I bet it'll be a PITA re line twist constanlty playing off the clutch.
Having said that the rest of the world seem to prefer non back winding reels, perhaps it's just slow to catch on over here.

Good spot.👍 Thanks.

Funnily enough the only time I'd never backwind is lure fishing. This is because I want the anti-reverse on when I strike otherwise I find I miss a few takes.

What I do insist on when lure fishing is an infinite anti-reverse for the same reason. Not all reels have this.

I'm not sure I'd want to buy a reel for bait fishing, including carping, though without an anti-reverse.

I suppose in most of Shimano markets most of the fishing is with lures rather than bait.

Deciding to replace two very old shimano reels i used for lure fishing etc i looked around at what was on offer naturally having had Shimano's i first took a look at the Shimano range. When examining the new Nasci and Sahara models to my shock/horror neither had Anti-Reverse!! . Also the latest Stradics lacked Anti-Reverse!!, for me personally backwinding is important . So before buying any of the latest Shimano Spinning range etc i would advise checking them out if you like me use the Anti-reverse facility.

I ended up buying two Daiwa's with anti-reverse and am glad i did..
