  • Double handle v Single Handle Reel

    Im looking to buy a new reel. Some ive looked at come in single handle and double handle versions.

    Are there any pros/cons of using a double handle reel over a single handle and vice versa?

    Why not get both and have a shakey mach 3 xt in 035 or 040 size. Cant fault mine and you get 4 spools and 2 handles for 50 quid!

        I have both double and single handle reels and the only minor advantage I can see is that in general when the handles are folded,singles take up less space.

              i did look at the shakey mach 3's originally but thought they cant be that good if you get 4 spools + 2 handles for 60 quid or so. So are they definitely a good reel then? Was also looking at the Daiwa Whisker (£75 ish). Any thoughts on these?

              Also i need a reel that i can use for both feeder rod and pellet waggler rod (feeder rod is 10foot i think and waggler rod will be 11'6" when i buy it). would the Mach 3 035 do the job?

              Also, which is better, Mach 3 Front drag or rear drag? And whats the difference/pros/cons of front drag v rear drag?

              Thanks.

                    Wouldn't be without my double handles now, balance better when fishing without the anti-reverse on and easier to locate a handle quickly!

                      Ditto, 035 single handle for Wag, 035 double handle for feeder, about to buy 2 more mach 3 reels at the end of the week they are that good.

                        I thought double handles was for incase you miss the first one.

                          Would u get front or rear drag? Which ones best or is it just down to personal preference?

                              2nd that, definitely front drag, no preference which handle.
                              The Stella top of the range Shimano reel as a single handle, so perhaps there is some benefits to a single handle over a double, who knows?

                              Regards
