    I've found that BassPro Shops makes good baitcasting rod and reel combos. They are fairly cheap but are still quality items. I bought an Extreme reel that came with one of their graphite model rods a few years back and am still using it.

    baitcasters are nice but for just starting out i would go cheap probably one already spooled with line and what not from what i've seen either people love or hate baitcasters and just a note make sure you have the reel adjusted for current conditions nothing is worse than having to respool because the backlash was to bad to pick out especially with new line already on the reel

    i must admit that i do have a bait caster but i rarely use it where i fish and don't find it worth the money I'd rather get three different spinning rod and reel combos of different size and line strength.

    Thanks for the advice guys, but a quick follow up question; Is there a better type of drag system to use as a baitcaster virgin?

    If you are just looking for another rod and reel why not try a baitcaster? Casting a baitcaster is another fishing skill that is worth learning (have patience). Baitcasters can also make it easier to get lures into tricky spots. Bass Pro is a good choice, as is Cabela's. Their store brands offer good value.

    there are a bunch of good baitcaster reels at bass pro shops. i was just there this past weekend looking at them. i think there price range was between around 40 bucks to well over 160. but you get what you pay for. i personally have only used a bait caster a couple to times. and just a little advice if you have never used one take it easy on that first couple of casts until you get the hang of it or you will have alot of fun trying to untangle the rats nest that you will get.

    The pros also use 60 pound test. Do you need that too?
