Default straight line reels?

anyone here use straight line reels for ice fishing? Do you like them over spinning reels?

Default Re: straight line reels?

If you're referring to fly reels, I love them for ice fishing down to 20' or so and will never use anything else. Eliminating line twist is a great benefit and being able to palm the reel when fighting a fish gives me a lot more control. Now if you're going after deep lakers, I don't think they're the answer given the retrieve rate is only 10-11".
