Havent heard of that one... sounds like it will work.
The thing I like about the low prof baiters is that it seems to be more ergonomic to have your thumb on the spool when you cast. This is the fail-safe. You can tell, with a little practice, immediately when you have made a foul cast. Just stop the spool with your thumb before bad things happen and try again. Even if the worst happens, with a line stripper and extra spool of line, you can re-spool a modern baitcaster in about 10min. Thats not a lot of down time in the grand scheme of things. Just aggrivating when it happens.
And, as hoosier pointed out, cant flip or pitch with a spincaster unless anyone knows something that I dont, which is ENTIRELY possible!
