Free Spool Reels
Then there are "free spool" reels which automatically free the spool from the gearing as the bait is cast, allowing the spool to run without turning the handle of the reel, thus allowing of long casts. It is somewhat on the principle of the coaster brake on a bicycle. The first movement of the handle in reeling in line again engages the gear and turns the spool.
