Sure, but expect numerous bird nests with the line while learning to throw this type of reel. I would probably start them out on a spinning reel if they are new to fishing. I prefer spinning reels and have been fishing a long time.

If you want them to hate fishing. Lol. Start spinning if he likes it enough go casting. Spinner is a ton easier. My wife won't touch a baitcaster in fresh water. She loves fishing more than I do.


Get a combo, they're cheap. Wal-Mart is where to go.

Bird nest is a problem, but I also like to point out that it is possible to set them up so there is no bird nesting. It just has to be done for each new lure u use, not that hard and you sacrifice a some casting distance.

For those that know, how is the silvermax different than the blackmax? How does the silvermax compare to brands like Lews, 13fishing, etc.? Thanks

silvermax has the rocket clutch and makes it a decent flipping/pitching reel because it allows quick engage/disengage of the clutch. blackmax is an entry-level caster.

I started fishing 15 years ago using baitcasters. Lets just say that im still birdnesting every now and then. I prefer it over a spincaster system these days but if I could do it all over again id start with a spinning reel.

Would this be a good replacement to a black max? How are the seals in this in comparison.

I bought this a week ago from Amazon for this price. Didn't realize it was a great deal, but glad to hear it was. Its my first baitcaster... I agree that there is a learning curve. It's not hard to adjust, but I find that once I'm adjusted correctly, I simply cannot get the distance that I get with spinners. I hope that I just need more practice.

Try setting the brakes half way or less and when casting, do a full motion while holding the rod with both hands...dont just whip it

It's probably the hardest reel to master, lots of full grown men struggle with baitcasters.

That being said my 7 year old really, really likes mine. He's figured out how to cast but needs a good bit of help, he can't really fish it on his own.
