Hey Diver1, the threadline is easier to use and really good for light and heavier weighted lures, plastics etc. The baitcaster will need a bit of practise, I used a Shimano TSM3 for sinning off the rocks, I taught myself how to use it efficiently down at the oval at Avoca using 50 gram spinners with no treble attached, got a few birds nests but worked it out with practise, thumbing , spool pressure and technique, I also used a small Shimano ULS 2000, I used this for lighter spinning it has a magnetic brake which helps with line over run.

Find yourself an open area or a park (with no people around) you will find it a lot different when you start usually with your first casts landing only 10 feet away..

Anyway have fun trying and learning... Cheers....
