Question can someone please explain.......

Alright guys what I wanna know is why spinning reels have the switch that engages/disengages the antireverse? Does anyone use this function for anything? I'm curious cuz yesterday when I disassembled and cleaned my spinning reel I lost the spring for that switch... what a pain in the ass to find it! Got me thinking why the hell is this even here!

Every once in awhile verticle jigging. when suspended fish are hitting the jig on the drop, I will use it for a quicker hook set, you dont have to flip the bail shut then set the hook.

I take my baitcasters apart for regular cleaning. But I do recommend a couple things :
1) have a good clean work area
2)have the reel schematic available
3)take pictures before and during disassembly (I've learned to do this with automotive repairs and has help me A LOT especially when rewiring sth)

I've taken apart revo's a lot can do it pretty easily. But this was the first time I took apart this spin reel. I found the spring after all but just made me wonder why that system is even there.....m

I gotcha, so basically becomes like a free spool setting of a bait caster...perhaps I'll try that on the ice sometime.

I never have either, but I know some really good sticks that swear by it when fishing light line. I am not that coordinated.

During that reassembly I was thinking just a straight up one way clutch bearing would've been fine with me. The ironic thing was I didn't even need to remove that switch for full disassembly. When I went to take off the side plate it seemed like it wasn't able to be removed. ..I removed that switch and..... it still wasn't ready to come off...lolI missed a screw on the bottom. When I went to put that spring back in it shot across the room under tension. ...
