Such review may be of some use for those who want to know who makes the best saltwater spinning reels.

All spinning reels in this list are made from quality metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, and brass, with precision-machined single-piece frames.
Low-speed reels are more appropriate for redfish and bass. Choose high-speed reels for game fish and two speed one for rapid recovering slack line if a fish makes a quick turn.
