I've fished for years with open and closed bail spincasting reels but recently just got a used Shakespeare LX1000 baitcasting reel. After poppin that booger open, its pretty darn complex! How does magnetic anti-backlash work? What are the tricks to using a baitcasting reel? Are there any web sites that can answer this for me and other questions on baitcasting reel usage? I would be most grateful for any help! Thanks.
