centerpin vs baitcaster reels?

Ok here I go. Lol I'm not sure which way to go on this topic. So any in-sight would go along way. I would like your views on the pros and cons of both reel set ups. I'm looking at either going to a Islander cp reel or possible Calcutta baitcaster reel. I just want a great float reel. I've worked myself into a corner and got myself so lost on both reels. I need some direction. Please add to this topic so i can easy my mind from going crazy.

Well actually, this is a real flyfishing forum (not like all the ones that just call themselves that).

So the best advice I could offer would be to try another forum that is not a flyfishing forum (hence the name).

I would wager that general fishing sites in the British Columbia area or Great Lakes would be best.

Good luck!

My advice would be to buy a fly fishing rig and forget about that other stuff.


P.S. If only I knew what a centerpin reel was maybe I could help.

I think that the Islander center pin reel is a thing of beauty. It will be hader to learn than the bait caster (and less versitile), but you will win MAJOR style points. If you wanted to "flyfish", I supose you could "nymph and indicate" with the center pin set up too.
