Baitcasting reels prices reflect what material the reel is made of, and what metal the gears inside the reel consist of. The type of handle can also affect baitcasting reels from cheap to expensive. Spinning reels will typically have a single handle, and that can be paddle shaped or an ergonomic knob, or even a ball. Baitcasting reels for sale will typically have two paddle handles.
