    Has anyone tried casting small crankbaits such as Rapala cd 5's or trout spoons like Thomas Buoyant spoons?

    I was wondering if the spool spins up easy enough during the cast.

    I normally use spinning outfits for this application but would like to use baitcasting gear

    Thanks for any replies

    The Metanium DC would be better suited for it, or the Aldebaran MGL if you want to use a casting reel. It comes down to spool weight more than anything. The spool in the Curado is light, but still heavier than the 100 or 50 size spools.

    Use braided line to keep the weight down. Braid weighs less than mono and FC.

    Use a BFS casting reel would be better suited
